IMRO Secondary Schools Songwriting Workshops

imro pic

Hi guys,

Well I had the most wonderful couple of days songwriting with the students from Muine Bheag Vocational School Bagenalstown Co Carlow and the TY girls from Presentation Secondary School Wexford.

I have partnered up with IMRO (Irish Music Rights Organisation) to bring songwriting workshops to 5 secondary schools around the country, and once again I was blown away by the talent in both schools.

The themes and ideas the students put forward were refreshing and inspiring. In just under two hours both days the students had written a song from scratch and performed it. A wonderful achievement.

Lorraine (from IMRO) and I were made feel so welcome in the schools and really loved working with the students.

Muine Bheag Vocational School have posted their song ‘Change’ on their Facebook page if you want to pop on over for a listen here. Presentation School Wexford will post their song ‘Lucy Mai’ on their page shortly.

Looking forward to the next ones later in the month :)

-userserve-ak.last.fm-serve-_-612999-Luan+Parle

Hi folks,

I’m delighted to tell you that I will be live on air with the very lovely John Masterson on KCLR FM tomorrow morning just after 11am.

I will be chatting with John about my upcoming songwriting workshop in Muine Bheag Vocational School Bagenalstown Co. Carlow this Monday morning.

I am partnering up with IMRO (Irish Music Rights Organisation) to bring 2/3 hour workshops to 5 selected secondary schools in Ireland funded by IMRO.

You might remember a few years back I held a songwriting workshop with the transition year girls from Presentation Secondary School Clonmel in association with IMRO for RTE’s Big Music Week.

The song written during my workshop titled ‘My Hero’ became a great success and was released for St Vincent De Paul Charity two weeks before Christmas reaching number 7 in the Irish charts. Paddy Power was even taking bets for a Christmas number 1.

The workshop will consist of two / three hours focusing on lyrics, melody, songwriting & performance, Q & A and a  fully composed song written by the end of the workshop which the participants can record on their phones etc and perform.

Dates / times and locations are as follows;
April 03rd – Muine Bheag Vocational School Bagenalstown Co. Carlow 9-11 am 
April 04th – Presentation School Wexford – 9-11am
April 24th – Colaiste Chill Mhantain Wicklow 9-11am

Hey folks,

So Clive and I are back in Ireland now after having the most wonderful time playing in Finland.

On Thursday March 16th we played Molly Malone’s Helsinki to a wonderful audience. It was so great to see a lot of familiar faces who came to see us play at the Finland Irish Festival in September of last year. Everybody was in great spirits for the St Patrick’s celebrations. We stayed just a few doors down from Molly Malone’s at Cumulus City Hotel Helsinki which was very conveniently positioned right next door to a guitar store. Clive was in his element as you can see from the pic below…All I was thinking was how on earth are we going to carry home another guitar 😉 😉

The following day we headed up to the town of Heinola to play the stunning RantaCasino owned by Stephen and Marika Cornin. We had a brilliant gig to a packed room.

The views from the venue are just so breathtaking I had to share a few pictures below.

RantaCasino lit up green for tonight's gig with Clive Barnes.

The following day we had free so Stephen and Marika very kindly brought us sightseeing and what wonderful sights we saw of the stunning Finland countryside. Of course I was not appropriately dressed for the snow…..in my defense the guitars took the luggage priority..Thankfully Markia’s beautiful Mom was on hand to lend me some snow boots :)
