Gerry is playing The Cobalt Café this Saturday coming, the 16th, with three other musicians including a great kora player from Senegal, Solo Cissokho. This show is being produced by Improvised Music.
Gerry says: “We will all play solo and then together. I’ve no idea what we’ll do, always a nice prospect in music.
Also on the bill, free strawberries and cream!”
The show is at 8PM and the Cobalt Café is at 16 North Great Georges St, Dublin 1. Tickets from www.entertainment.ie

Music Network writes: “Formed in 2010, This is How we Fly is a Contemporary Folk band consisting of Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh on fiddle & hardanger fiddle, Seán Mac Erlaine on bass clarinet, saxophones & live electronics, Nic Gareiss on percussive dance, and Petter Berndalen on drums and percussion. Individually, each member has carved out a reputation for not just mastering their chosen fields, but rising above, redefining and renewing the musical world they come from. Initially brought together through a commission from the Dublin Fringe Festival (under the moniker Four on the Fringe of Folk) in September 2010 to play a one-off show, they received an unexpectedly rapturous response. Their music sees Swedish folk music rhythms meet the texture of traditional Irish fiddle, percussive dance from America & improvised jazz and electronics.”
