On the Road Again with Fiachna Ó Braonáin & Tom Dunne

Despite having shared stages across the world over several decades, Tom Dunne of Something Happens and Fiachna Ó Braonáin of Hothouse Flowers had never actually performed together until they were invited to do so on RTE Radio 1’s Ray Darcy show where they performed a Christy Moore song, “John O Dreams” and a Willie Nelson song, “On The Road Again”. Ray loved it, Fiachna and Tom had a ball.. and were joking they should do more of it! Or perhaps… only half-joking! 

Since then several coffees were had and they decided to make it happen! Their respective bands were from different musical worlds but Tom and Fiachna were always united by a love of performance and song writing and were very taken with what those different schools of thought could bring to their coffee table. Since then they have been working on what songs they could perform together including some new songs neither have performed publicly before. Tom had never experienced a singer singing harmony with him until Fiachna sang with him on John O’Dreams – this was one of the sparks that created a longing for more! Fiachna’s lifelong role as an ensemble vocalist as well as a later life lead vocalist fanned those sparks further!
On The Road Again promises to be a fun evening of songs and stories as these two old pals hit the stage together for the very first time!
