Agricultural Light & Magick Vol. X - Beyond Baily Point

by Raising Holy Sparks



The Agricultural Light & Magick series compiles various live appearances (& occasionally other ephemera) since Raising Holy Sparks was summoned in 2011. Lately I've been playing under my own name also, but there have only been a handful of appearances thus far.

Citóg, The Cellar, Galway, Ireland (28/06/12)

Baily Point, Salthill, Galway, Ireland (14/08/12)

House Show, Galway, Ireland (21/01/11)

The first set was a take on a song from A Mendicant Hymnal & features quite a gathering of players (Declan, Jimmy, Brigid, Natalia, Willie, Aaron & Gavin.. hopefully not missing anyone.) Yawning Chasm & Brigid Power-Ryce played that night also. The second set took place in the abandoned underground car park of Baily Point & the whole audience became the band. An edited version appears on The Observance Of Holy Days as Inhale The Void & Hold It In. Solid advice, all things considered. The third set here is the first RHS show ever, a house show. Declan Kelly, Aaron Coyne & Vicky Langan joined me on the second piece. Declan & Aaron performed as a duo, though I forget the name of it & Wölflinge also played. It seems so long ago.... I've added two photos from that gig, though I can't remember who took them. Declan maybe?
