Legendary Electro-Funk DJ Greg Wilson is in town tomorrow night to share his wealth of experience and industry knowledge with an audience in The Twisted Pepper over a nice cup of Barrys Tea before taking to the decks for an extended set. 

Lucky me got to interview Greg for Totally Dublin’s website so if you’re interested in what the man who has been the main influence in the careers of Norman Cook, A Guy Called Gerald and Shaun Rider has to say for himself, you can take a peek here

 

Greg was also the first person to mix two records together live on television in 1983 on ‘The Tube’, presented by a very young Jools Holland. The clip below is priceless 🙂





Grainne Duffy – Rather Go Blind

As seen on ‘Other Voices’ tonight, Grainne Duffy proving that Irish women can sing the blues. Is it just me or does the incessant background chatter add to the charm?!

 





Competition Time!!

Thanks to the lovely folk responsible for Hush at the Royal Albert Hall, I have  tickets to give away for the gig on the 24th February. The show will feature Ben Onono, Roxy Rawson and my personal favorite, Orphans & Vandals. All you have to do to get your mits on a pair of tickets is leave a comment telling me ONE of the acts performing at Hush. 

Good luck!!
