Old Red playing "About Last Night" at The Zodiac Sessions open mic night, held in Bruxelles bar, Dublin, Ireland.
Paul Kirwan: I've been playing the guitar now for probably about 12 years collectively,the harmonica for about 5 years and the piano for about three years ,I started off as a drummer for DUBBED, we played dorans and the mean fiddler and a few smaller venues. I've been in many bands that never saw a stage, bar two:DUBBED and MOANY LISA(both with a lot of potential but fell apart) my first real solo gig was in Austrailia, Coffs harbour, The Coffs Hotel ,in 2003, when I got home I tried around the Dublin suburbs without any real progress, lots of experience but nothing else. Things started to change when I played at "Dollyfest" in Mitchels, Slane, I opened up for some really great bands. It was a great day. then I got in to the "Bagfull of Songs" in Sarsfields, Drogheda. Absolutely brilliant venue, Where your treated wih respect. I played on my own in mcPhails in Drogheda, a charity event, that was cool. I've played the "bagfulls" twice to date, but really had a great time, both times. The second time I had Bolger with me, I saw him play with a band called Shuffler, Excellent band, I think it was around mid 2006, he was brilliant, I knew I need to play with someone who had that carisma n fearlessness on stage, he brought punk to Old Red, we havent been mates a long time but I feel I know him my whole life. The plan is to get a drummer and maybe another guitarist, work hard and get the name around, none of this reality t.v. bullshit . . . . . . . paul bolger:I'm playing the guitar since I was 17, I enjoy long briske walks in the park in the winter, I enjoy badminton,curling , and am presently tidlywinks champion of leinster, i've been in numerous bands . . the casuals, richard nixon, levity and more . . . .
