Johnny Patterson Musical

I just received some pics from the musical tribute to my great-grandfather Johnny Patterson at the beginning of August, which took place in Killorglin, Kerry. Great weekend down there, everyone involved with the show gave me a warm welcome, which seems to be a reflection of the general friendliness down there anyway. The show itself was amazing, great actors/actresses as were the musicians and musical arrangements, the dancers, costumes, the script was both humourous and tragic. Magic night all round (till the gardai kicked us out of the pub).

I had a photoshoot the next day for the Kerry newspapers, alongside moustached lead actor Muiris Crowley, who played Johnny, and local historian Pa Houlihan who kindly presented me with a really old poster which he had framed for me. I didn't want to leave the place but I had a wedding in Romania to get to. Life is tough.

Good luck to Karen at the Rose Of Tralee

Clarification: some light on the (Anti) matter

Just felt I needed to clear something up due to a large amount of emails & messages Ive received recently regarding 'Antimatter'. I think theres been some confusion with the recent tours I've made together with Mick Moss, often billed under the name 'Antimatter' by promoters. A lot of people seem to think this is still my current project even though I quit nearly 5 years ago. We are playing together live as a collaboration of songs that I've written for various projects, and Micks own tracks which he now releases using the name 'Antimatter', but none of my recent or future recordings or travelling plans are related to that name, only the gigs that we do together. I'll try to get a translation of this in latin Spanish too so I dont have to keep explaining :)

Antimatter = Mick Moss http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antimatter_(band)

Íon = me http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duncan_Patterson
