I had a great time at the Americana Festival in Nashville and I hope I can write more blog-posts about that. But, the greatest moment for me was not the festival, but that I had the opportunity to do a real writers round at the Commodore! I have been going to the Commodore during the last six years and seen many great songwriters play there. I have only played the open mic before, but this was the first time I had the chance to do a “real” round. Thanks to Debi Champion for letting me do this 😀

I went to Dublin for the first time of my life. It was a great experience. We decided to stay in the Temple Bar district where all the music bars are. I listened to a lot of live music. Too bad that they play so many popular covers and not so much traditionell music as I would have liked. I also took the chance to play myself. I did one performance at the Circle Sessions at the International Bar and I played one set during the Darkey Kelley’s Songwriter night. Great fun and thanks for having me.
