Songs of Love, Peace & Outer Space
Chris Conway is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist blending US West Coast styles with Celtic music and jazz. Think David Crosby on a journey taking in Ireland, a jazz club, and Outer Space. Magical one moment and funny the next.
His space songs are a regular feature and are often where the humour lies. His "Alien Jellyfish Song" has been covered by bands in the USA and Canada. He has promised to bring his theremin - the first ever electronic instrument that was used in science fiction movie scores of the 50s. "Christo" has released his 12th songs album "We're All Astronauts" and he has played with Peter Tork of The Monkees, members of Jethro Tull and Fairport Convention, and has opened for Jefferson Starship, Richie Havens, Roy Wood, and Bob Geldof.
Simply arrive at the castle from 5.00pm for a picnic. Bring your own food and drink or buy onsite. Concerts take place inside the Castle from 6.30pm to 7.30pm with the audience seated in a horseshoe shape with the artists in the centre.
