Dublin will be bursting with gigs at the start of the year. If you are lucky to find yourself waking along, then better head to The Temple Bar where all things exciting and traditional happens. Temple Bar has been around for almost twenty years, bringing you the brightest and the greatest in Irish music. Check out http://www.templebartrad.com/

Fo those who haven’t bought Marc Gunn’s Kilted For Her Pleasure should get their copies now. Funny, beautiful and warm are used to describe this collection of songs that gives you a sideways glance.

Here’s what one reviewer says:

“Funny. Sexy Songs. Oh my… Is it warm in here – or is it just me? Gunn will heat up your blood with this devilishly funny collection – sure to elicit the many naughty giggles and blushes promised by the title. A sure bet for fans of sexy Scotsmen (like Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series), beer, filk and cats.”
– Melissa McCauley
