|Colum and Ben Sands|
The Castle Arch, Trim County Meath
From the Poetry Day Ireland event on Tara to The Castle Arch in Trim where Colum and Ben Sands were playing in aid of the MS Therapy Centre is a small enough journey I suppose and noting the fine poetry that was read, but the above two members of the Sands family are poets and then some. Looking them up on the Internet, I see they've played in some of the best venues in the world and after the above I think they're off to Germany. It really is ten out of ten stuff and if you get the chance to catch a performance, wherever you are, take it. Scary how good. Eamonn, I think it was who did the intros remarked that he used to park his van up on the Hill of Tara so he could tune in Radio Ulster to listen to them. RTE might do well to put them on in concert some time. Anyway give them a listen over on youtube. Will load up a video next time!
