On the Road Again

…Fiachna Ó Braonáin, Tom Dunne & Alan Connor hit the road together for the very first time!

Fri 9th June 2023 - Tue 9th May 202320:00 - 21:30

“On The Road Again” comes to St. Mary’s Collegiate Church in Youghal on Friday June 9th and promises to be a fun evening of song and story in this stunning venue as Fiachna Ó Braonáin, Tom Dunne & Alan Connor hit the road together for the very first time!

Despite having shared stages across the world over several decades, Tom Dunne of Something Happens and Fiachna Ó Braonáin of Hothouse Flowers had, in fact, never performed together until they were invited to do so on RTE Radio 1’s Ray Darcy show, where they performed a Christy Moore song, “John O Dreams” and a Willie Nelson song, “On The Road Again”.   Ray D’Arcy loved it,  Fiachna Ó Braonáin and Tom Dunne had a ball… and were joking they should do more of it ……..half-joking perhaps!

Since then and over several coffees they decided it must happen!   Their respective bands were from different musical worlds but Tom Dunne and Fiachna Ó Braonáin were always united by a love of performance and songwriting.   They were very taken with what those different schools of thought could bring to their coffee table.  Since then they have been working on what songs they could perform together including some new songs neither have performed publicly before.

Multi Instrumentalist Alan Connor was then drafted in to add some Piano, Guitar and Percussion to the dynamic duo!    Alan is a member of RTE’s  “The Late Late Show” House Band since 2021.

Tickets @ €30- may be purchased online at Livingyoughal.ie or in person at Youghal Heritage Tours on 57 Main Street, Youghal, Co Cork
