The most important ingredient of any rehearsal

Barry just turned down a job offer from The Who

Hey! Since when have there been two females in this band?

What's a nice girl like Lindsay doing with this lot?

Where's me bagpipes??

Such concentration!

Is that a spider on the ceiling??

Barry is just - well - WEIRD!

Trouz Bras at WGBH

On April 3rd, 2009 Trouz Bras took part in the 3rd "Boston Session" for WGBH Radio. Along with the band, there were Matt and Shannon Heaton, Simon Chrisman, Tri and Paddy Keenan.

The show will be broadcast on WGBH as part of the "Celtic Sojourn" show with Brian O'Donovan - check for details. I believe that it's being broadcast on June 13th.

We played live for an invited audience of around 100 people and much fun was had by all.

Here are some photos of the day + some of the after session dinner at Brian O'Donovan's house. Click on a photo to see a larger version.

The beautiful Fraser performance studio where the
event happened. Lindsay, Matt and Barry wait for
our turn to sound check.

The view from the control room. A VERY cool facility.

Ray and Barry get to make some noise
just as the earthquake began to hit.

Lindsay looks ready and confident for her first live gig
with the band

Matthew and Barry wait patiently while the technicians
go about setting up for five Celtic acts to perform live
on the radio.

It's all over now - Ray and Barry chat to the piper from
the band Tri at the after session dinner at Brian's house.

Lindsay knows who to make friends with - Brian O'Donovan,
the radio host and owner of the house.

Barry looks like he has designs on either my water or my
lasagne - He's not getting either!

Breizh radio on your ipod touch or iphone

If you own an ipod touch or iphone, you can now get a 3rd part app that allows you to listen to five radio stations from Brittany while you are on the go!

Just go to the "apps store" on your device and search for "Breizh." Only one app comes up and it's called "iBZH." It costs nothing to download and install on your device, and immediately you can be listening to Radio Kerne, Radio Kreiz Breizh, Radio Bro Gwened, Radio Avorig FM and Radio Plum FM. Radio Plum FM is broadcasting some of its shows in the Gallo language.

The only drawback that I find with the app is that if you have your device "lock" activated, then as soon as it locks, you lose the program. I just leave my itouch unlocked!

If you don't own an ipod touch or iphone, you can listen to all five stations online at:
