I went to a rocking concert last Saturday afternoon when my son Eamon and a group of enthusiastic Cork musicians played some great music and sang a few tunes from their new CD….. All Mixed Up. The concert was organised to launch their CD which was put together to raise much needed money for Cork Simon, a wonderful charity that does serious work to support the homeless people of Cork.

All of the artists gave their time and talent for free and Eamon sang the song he had composed about a homeless girl in the city. His song is called 5 O’clock Birdsong. His cousin Breiffni Horgan also gives a beautiful rendition of Puccini’s Nessum Dorma on the CD.

The official launch was done very professionally by the Cork County Mayor Seamus Mc Grath and during the concert everyone was delighted to see Micheál Martin arrive to support their fund raising efforts.

Copies of the CD are on sale at Pro Musica the music shop in Cork if anyone wants a copy.
