I’ve only been driving the rental car through New York for 30 seconds and I’m already being beeped at like I just ran over someone’s Granny. Co pilot Jenni is no help; out of the corner of my eye I can see her attempt to keep a calm face while tightly gripping the door handle. In the back seat Luke takes over for her as navigator while Maggie and Paddy keep quiet beside him not wanting to disturb us in this moment of terror. We’re on our way from Brooklyn to my first headline show in The Burren in Boston. The next 20 minutes pass me in a blur but somehow we manage to get out of the city and on to the freeway unscathed. The rest of the trip passes by relatively uneventfully apart from one incident when we stop for lunch in a small town somewhere in Connecticut. I park down the road a bit from a café where we head to get some food. I’m sure to put in a good few quarters into the meter next to the car. As I’m sitting outside the café enjoying my pesto and cheese panini I see a cop car pulled up beside our car. As I run over the cop gets in his car. I stare at the meter; I still have 8 minutes left. I take the ticket off the windscreen. “Offence: Parking with the passenger side wheel to the curb”…? I stare at the cop in disbelief… what does that even mean? He rolls down his window as he see’s the dumb look on my face and says in a thick Connecticut drawl, “Ma’am, you can’t park with your passenger side to the curb.” I can’t even utter the words, ”But I’m Irish!” Before he’s speeding off down the road in search of other parking offences. We continue on to The Burren.
We arrive in Boston and me and Luko head straight to sound check. The Burren is a really cool venue just outside the city. Sound check goes smoothly but I’m really nervous. It’s our first headline show of the tour and the first night Luke and me will play the full set together. After some food and a quick interview with Sean, we head downstairs to the dressing rooms to get changed. It’s time to go on stage and I’m really nervous. As I walk out on stage in The Burren from behind the curtain I see the place is rammed! A huge cheer greets us and we get straight into our first song “Let’s Find Some People”. The crowd is fantastic, a few songs in they’re singing along and really put me at ease, the nerves are soon forgotten about. After two encores I come off stage buzzing.
The rest of the evening is spent talking to audience members in The Burren, it’s about half and half Irish and American and the response is great. I meet Andrew, Paul Brady’s nephew, who I had been introduced to last week in Whelan’s. He takes us all out into the city after the show. It’s an amazing night to start off the tour. Next stop – An Ri Ra Butte, Montana…
