This weekend the Clew Bay Pipe Band will collaborate with Al Gare ( Imelda May\\'s Bass Player) and Peter Williams (Lead Guitarist with Dexy\\'s Midnight Runners ) in arranging Al's song \\'Clew Bay\\'. Imelda currently sings the song as part of her set list and both Imelda and Al are excited about the possibility of incorporating the Pipes and Drums into the arrangements.
Des Cafferkey has written an original Piping Score to accompany the song while Owen Mc Namara , Rory Conlon, Róisín Carney and Ailish Walsh have arranged the snare and tenor sections. The pre-production demo will take place this coming Saturday morning and we are looking forward to hearing the end product.
We will keep you all posted on how things pan out over the coming months! Our thanks to Joe and Ann Corcoran in the Castlecourt Hotel for being so kind as to give us the use of their fantastic facilities for the recording. More exciting times ahead for the Clew Bay Pipe Band.....
