Filmmaker Myles O’Reilly made a gorgeous film about this past Christmas Eve Busk for the Dublin Simon Community. Watch it at his website arbutusyarns.net.
For the fourth year Glen busks in Grafton Street to raise money for homeless charities Peter McVerry Trust and Simon Community. He is joined at various times throughout the evening by Phil from Simon Community, Bono, Paddy Casey, Matthew Devereux, Fiach, Eoin Glackin, Gavin Glass, Lisa Hannigan, Ciarán Kilbride, Sinead O’Connor, Liam O’Maonlai, Declan O’Rourke, Vincent Swan, Steve Wall, Joe Wall, Shane Wearen and many more. As the crowd grows, they are asked to move from one place to another by the guards.
We hope everyone is enjoying their holiday/weekend! Over the last couple of days we’ve added more past setlists, a few new photos under Stills, and a new section called +Content under Past Gigs. We have a few new ideas brewing for the coming new year so keep an eye on us here and also at Twitter.
Last night a host of Irish musicians participated in the annual Christmas Eve Busk on Grafton Street in Dublin. Glen, Damien Rice, Damien Dempsey, Bono, Imelda May, Luka Bloom and many others joined in to help raise money for the Peter McVerry Trust, an organization that supports young homeless people.
