IRELAND: Our trip to Ireland was wonderful…Here’s what one fellow traveller had to say:

Would not change a thing. Our small group of kindred spirits worked extremely well. With Bernice attracting her lovely fans and as our common thread, we jelled better than any other tour I’ve been on. The meals included in the cost were wonders. I’m a finicky eater and each hotel worked with me to provide an “eat later” meal as I practice eating intermittent meals—16 hours between dinner and breakfast. Religiously following this plan, I was stunned to find I lost a pound on the trip. And I had huge sirloin steaks two nights. Woot!

Favorite parts of the tour: Skibbereen and The Famine Heritage, small stone circle and Bernice’s singing there; moonlight kayaking in phosphorescent waters, the concert at St. James’ Church in Dingle, our visit to Inish Oir exploration, guided walk on The Burren with a visit to an isolated holy well.

Archives: I was offered the honor of having my work archived at the Southwest Collection at Texas Technical University in Lubbock. I have always felt fortunate to be able to tour my music in Texas, a state that was takes their love of music seriously. I love to think about my writings and recordings living on in the wild west.
