From the Seamus Heaney HomePlace museum. I was already an admirer, but the museum made me a full-on fan.
And of course, Sweden was glorious as usual. So good to see friends and so humbling to be the recipients of this kind of hospitality. And so sad when Sweden lost to England. 🇸🇪
There’s truly no place like the Dales.
And of course we had to be American tourists in Oxford. Signed the book in the Rabbit Room and loved reading all the notes that have accumulated in the last two years.
My happy spot in Castlerock. I wrote quite a bit of book four sitting right here five years ago.
A few highlights of our family band tour in Europe. This is called Cave Dale, which is where they filmed the “AS YOU WISH...!” scene from The Princess Bride. Crazy.
YOU GUYS! My sweet 15-year-old songwriting daughter @skyegirlmusic has just released her latest single, produced by my son @ashapetason, featuring guitars by my son @aedanpeterson! So very proud of them all. Link in bio, or check it on Spotify!
One more show in Northern Ireland tomorrow (July 6)! Come see me and the fam play some songs in Ballymena. These sheep will also be there. (Details on my website.)
Andrew will be joining a wonderful lineup of artists this fall for @bibletour2018, including @mattmahermusic and @nataliegrant. Tickets and info at bibletour2018.com
It's so very good to be back in Northern Ireland.
We made it to Sweden and just finished our show a bit ago. Couldn't be prouder of Jamie and those three awesome kids ("kids") for facing a brutal travel day without complaint and then backing up their old man like bosses. Sweden, you are as lovely as ever. Thank you, for your prayers! Goodnight. (Photo: @mattiasmartinson, who lent me his guitar.)
Last night's show in @GlenEyrieCastle was so very good for my heart. Thanks for being a great (and gracious) crowd. Grace gives us the courage to take risks--like playing a Paul Simon song without rehearsing. Can't wait to get back to CO. (Photo by Susy Britton.)
