By Sean Tyrrell
Seán Tyrrell here. Welcome to my Fund it page. I am asking you, my supporters, to help me raise some money to go towards the recording, mixing, mastering, and duplication of my new album. With your support it is due for release in May 2012.
In return for your support with this project, you will receive rewards and there are various reward options for your contribution depending how involved you wish to become. You can see the rewards on offer on the bottom left hand side of this page.
In the past I have gone down the route of looking for a record company, but this has proved a bit of a disaster. In order for me to take the next step and see this album join the other CDs on my catalogue. I need a little help from friends of my music to make it happen.
I have already set in motion a tour to follow the launch of the CD in Galway May 2012. The tour will continue throughout the summer and hopefully play many festivals and club gigs both at home and abroad to promote the album.
The songs and tunes have been part of my live performances for quite sometime and many of you would have heard me perform them. Now at last they get their chance to shine and (like my previous CDs) recorded at my home in the Burren to the highest quality by my old sparring partner Colin Boland. The CD represents a lot more of what I do these days. For years I was burying myself behind a wall of other instruments (I suppose due to my lack of confidence in my own ability). Fear not it is not solo, but only accompanied in a sparser style than usual with great performances from musicians who have been playing with me for years and now need to be paid.
I hope when this album is released that Brendan Fricker and Billboard will be of the same opinion as expressed below. Looking forward as always to hopefully meeting you all on this journey. Like the lyrics of the incomparable Tom Paxton whose song I cover on this album; 'I can't help but wonder where I am bound." So onwards and upwards with the Walker.
All your contributions will help make this album a reality.
Please have a look at the various reward options on the bottom left side of this page.
