Bushmills Live

Saw Snow Patrol last night at the Bushmills distillery on the far north coast of Northern Ireland. There was a delightfully intimate atmosphere in the 'Cooperage' (no coopers present thankfully) with plenty of loyal fans mouthing the lyrics as the band went thru its paces.

A long way to come to hear a bit of music but I finally got this northern outpost of Irish whiskey. It's been a long time coming as Stephen Stills once sang on a Crosby Stills & Nash album. Back to reality and press week for the July issue today (June 21).
