A glorious day spent in the Irish countryside with songwriter Peter Doran. First Peter plays his song Little Room while we stopped by his Granny’s house, then Peter performs the new song Tug, taken from his latest album release online now, due for hard copy release in September.

Both Michael Brunnock and Brendan O’ Shea have been asked to sing at The Irish Arts Center, as part of a songwriters series called ‘SongLives’.
The new series showcases Ireland’s contemporary songwriters, bringing the richness of the busking tradition of Dublin’s Grafton Street to New York City.
In February, March and May, the Irish Arts Center invites you to spend an evening with some of Irelands best contemporary songwriter as they tell their stories up and close and acoustically in the intimate Donaghy Theatre.
The series is Curated by Grammy Award-winner Susan McKeown,
