Gettysband

One of the things I enjoyed in Norn Iron was being in Keith Getty's band (aka New Irish Choir & Orchestra - now the New Irish Arts). He's being going to far flung places recently, though has retained his accent, I'm glad to hear. He's worth listening to here.

Once in my Dad's bookshop, where he was in for books to study Revelation (to prepare for a show a year from then - he goes in for serious Bible study before any music!), I was moaning to Keith about the lack of decent worship songs. He cut me off: "Don't complain about the bad ones; write good ones!" Things haven't changed, and thankfully he's been writing the good ones, as I've not got beyond putting melodies to my Mum's kids choruses. Go on, hear what he has to say about hymns, worship songs, church music, writing hymns, his testimony, church services, and hiding in the toilets to avoid bad music before coming out for the sermon (not advised).

Wow - you know Keith? Now you've really gone up in my estimation (even higher I mean). Autograph...?

I think the Keith Getty links are great stuff.

Lol, everyone knows everyone in Norn Iron. Christian circles anyway. As often as I try to disprove it, I end up proving it.

I like to think that if you've met Dave Bish you've met everyone worth meeting anyway.
