So I arrived in Dublin yesterday morning to visit my sister and her family, right? It’s pure coincidence that KT happens to be in Ireland for the next three days, right?
The adventure here always begins with the rental car drive on the WRONG side of the road from the airport to my sister’s house. I really don’t understand why the Irish continue to follow this crazy British practice.
I am absolutely positive that driving on the left side of the road is more intuitive.
I’ll head up to Belfast in a few hours for KT’s gig at Ulster Hall tonight. Anyone know who is opening for KT for this part of her tour? Brian Lopez was terrific but I’m pretty sure he didn’t make the trip. As an aside, does anyone else agree that Brian's music is much more dynamic live and solo than on his CD with a backing band? Actually, I feel the same way about most of KT’s Invisible Empire/Crescent Moon songs but we can have that discussion later.
I'll switch over to the "KT Live" section of the Board for my Ireland concert reviews.
Anyone need anything from Belfast?
