Special C is in the middle of their British tour, and we just got a note from Greg Cahill – and a cool photo of the band posing at a prominent English landmark.
“We left the USA last Wednesday and arrived in Dublin on Thursday morning. We then drove to Belfast, played at the Errigle Inn and drove back to Dublin to catch an early Friday morning ferry to Holyhead in England, and then play in Bulkington that evening. On Saturday we played in Steeple Morden (workshops and evening concert), Sunday in Birmingham (with our great friends the Toy Hearts), Monday in Bristol and Tuesday in Rainford Junction.
After numerous tours in the UK, we finally made the time to visit Stonehenge – unbelieveable… one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
Today we are awaiting the ferry in Cairnryan, Scotland, to head back to Belfast and play in Ireland this evening – and for the next 13 days.
Having a great time seeing our friends and playing our music over here – but will appreciate being home at the end of the month.”
Have fun boys, and get back home safe and sound!
Details on their remaining UK dates can be found on the Special C web site.
