This week's MIDDAY SHOW was a musical interlude with some very creative people!
The Fairy and the Fiddler have been on my MIDDAY SHOW before and Shaz returned to share their news of a collaboration with Jam Shugar and more! Sadly Daniel (The Fiddler) was unavailable; but we played a few tracks of Daniel's wonderful music! Get well soon Daniel!
It was great to chat to Aidan Bolger and Julianne Hennelly and hear of how they came to be Jam Shugar!
Thanks to Shaz, Julianne and Aidan for a great show! An hour of eclectic musical performances showing what a rollercoaster ride a Jam Shugar show is!
They told of future gigs and especially the launch of their new single The Paddys Day Story!

Jam Shugar sent me a PRESS RELEASE:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DEBUT SINGLE RELEASE FROM JAM SHUGAR
Castlebar based band, Jam Shugar will release their debut single on Friday, 11 March 2016 in Garbo's Music Venue, Castlebar.
Jam Shugar formed early in 2014 when musician, Aidan Bolger met with talented singer, Julianne Hennelly at an Open mic session in Castlebar. The duo have been booking gigs and performing as a 2 piece acoustic set, and occasionally collaborating with other local musicians.
Initially the duo spent time touring and performing in venues around the country, until in 2015 they decided to focus on playing more local gigs. It was also around this time that they began hosting original music nights in Garbo's Music Venue, providing a much needed platform for local musicians to present new and original music.
With the success of the original music nights and the positive reactions, song writer Aidan Bolger began making home recordings and experimenting with many styles and genres, often adding humour and comedy to his lyrics. Bolger was one of the recipients of the Music Recording Assistance Award from Mayo County Council in October '15 and this has led to time working in a professional studio.
The debut single from Jam Shugar is titled "The Paddy's Day Story" and is a comic perspective on St. Patrick's story. It's a Country/Folk song with melodic verses and a hearty, lively chorus. It was recorded and mastered in Green Fields Studio, Headford and will be available to download on iTunes from Friday, 11th March 2016. Limited edition CD's will be sold at the live shows.
Following the release, Jam Shugar will be performing in venues around Mayo for the week surrounding St. Patrick's Day. UPCOMING GIGS include Fri. 11th - Garbo's, Castlebar (Along with Bowie tribute), Sat. 12th - Seven Arches Bar, Newport, Wed. 16th - Cobweb, Castlebar (Session with 4's & 9's), Thur. 17th - T. Flynn's, Castlebar. Fri. 18th - Mulroy's, Castlebar. To find out about further live gigs follow Jam Shugar on Facebook.
