Bond!

I have been going through the Bond films on a huge screen and projector for our ‘family night out’ since we can’t go out for real. Loving the music and the ridiculousness of it all, great escapism. So I decided to make my own cello version of the theme, which is so much fun to play! I’m sharing it for free for a short time.

Here’s the link to the store product page: https://sellfy.com/playcellomusic/p/james-bond-theme/, where you can download the pdf for FREE! 
Share the link spy-like with your cello friends too if you want to.
Keep well, keep the cello playing going and all the best!

New Release: Transcendence

I am excited for you to hear my latest album! It has been featuring on Irish Radio Lyric FM’s Blue of the Night with Bernard Clarke all week. It’s fabulous radio listening wherever you are.

And now you can get the album on Bandcamp! It is also on streaming sites like iTunes, Spotify, apple music, so do find, and listen, buy, share and help get the album a bit of notice! I’m really proud of it, and I know you’ll enjoy listening.

If you buy on Bandcamp in the next week and are a cellist, you might like to get a FREE pdf copy of my Sacred Irish Music for Solo Cello sheet music. The 11 tracks I recorded are in this book, as well as 12 more, and it’s usually €26, so it’s a great deal. Just contact me if you want to have it and have bought the album. There’s a 20% sale on over there at the Play Cello Music store too, just until next week, so fill up on your solo cello repertoire for the season. Loads of enjoyable, satisfying and beautiful pieces to play.

Have a lovely day and I’d love to know which track of Transcendence is your favourite!
