North American Spring Tour Cancelled

Tá brón orainn

We are so disappointed that our North American Spring Tour 2020 has come to a halt because of the corona virus crisis.

We were having such a wonderful tour with most shows selling out; standing ovations etc.

But we don’t want to compromise our audience health in this emergency.

We have got advice to return to Ireland as soon as possible as nobody knows what’s next and everything is changing by the hour.

Our wonderful agent; AnneMarie Martins at SRO Artists Inc., is working hard as we write, to reschedule all the remaining concerts for this coming Autumn or next Spring 2021.

Our apologies to every single one of you; the promoters; the fans; the friends, this decision wasn’t made lightly, but it is right.

Thank you , Go raibh maith agaibh uilig, for supporting us over the years.

It is over the coming months that we will really need your support by buying our music not on free streaming and buying our music book at this link.

Hopefully our Bus Your with Hammond Tours ; September 12-19th 2020 , will go ahead and that you’ll spread the word for those interested to come along. More info at

Until we meet again
