This show is a comic, musical journey but not as we know it. Tracing Tyrrell’s travels through music, song and story often with hilarious consequences. From his innocent awakenings in Galway of the sixties, to exotic climes such as Moate, Comebychance and far beyond.
The show introduces us to characters and places that would not be out of place in a Myles na Gopaleen tale. It is a how not to do it approach to professional music, from BnB in a Cape Breton police station to his arrival at a major gig on board the bucket of a giant JCB, burying a dead horse on the way. That was touring Tyrrell style on a grand scale.
Things might only improve from here but not for Tyrrell. His path has never been straight forward, after witnessing this show, one cannot be blamed for suspecting that he may have paved the musical bothareen less travelled.
‘No go Blavatsky’ could do for Comebychance what moving statues did for Ballinspittle. Sit back and enjoy the trip.
