WILL WE EVER BE FREE?
As you know we receive a lot of singles at RMHQ; and the vast majority have to fall by the wayside simply for logistical reasons; but this single is as fascinating as it is poignant and prescient.
The Covid19 lockdown has been a difficult time for many people, none more so than the over 70’s.
But for legendary Irish Country singer Brendan Quinn it’s been a very productive time and he’s now releasing his lockdown themed single “Will We Ever Be Free” and is announcing a full album too.
“Not being able to do what I’ve been doing for 50 odd years came as a bit of shock! says Brendan, “Everything just stopped last February …… no more music.
I had a 14 day tour lined up for May, gigs and festivals over the summer, all cancelled.
But I tried to stay positive, I walked most every day and started to stream gigs live on FB from my front room.
I did it every day for 100 days and I reckon I sang about 700 songs. I really enjoyed interacting with all the folk online but it’s just not the same as playing in front of an audience but it kept me connected to my music.”
Released September 18th 2020
