I’ve been watching Peco play for the last few years and tonight, tonight is the culmination of a lot of hard work! We finally got a live run through of his as of yet untitled debut album which will be released early in 2019.
The setting for tonight's gig is the beautiful studio of NC & JO'B Photography in Rathangan. The original stone walls, solid oak floors and signage lend an air of authenticity to the venue that just can’t be bought. It’s simply beautiful.
First up on the night was the wonderful Tracy Gallagher. I’d not heard of Tracy before, so I’d no idea what to expect. She has an amazing voice and the crowd really enjoyed her set. She’s well worth checking out if you get the chance.
We all took a break after Tracys great set. We had a little bit of time to get some fresh air and have a chat and a drink on the main street in Rathangan. After Peco and the band set up, we were all called back in.
Now I know there is always a difference between what is recorded in the studio and what gets played live, but from the first track to the last, the forthcoming album is an absolute belter. Even the slow romantic numbers trundle along at high speed!
Anyway, look, if you weren’t there, you missed a great night. Unfortunately you’re going to have to wait till the New Year to hear the album, but it will be worth the wait, really it will!
