CHARLIE MCGETTIGAN - WE WILL FLY

PRESENTED BY TOM MILLETT

Charlie McGettigan started his musical career in the 1960s heavily influenced by artists like the Beatles and The Rolling Stones. When he moved to Dublin in 1968 he honed in on the thriving folk scene there at that time. His influences then were people like Paul Brady, Donal Lunny and Andy Irvine. Moving to the rural environment of Drumshanbo, Co. Leitrim in 1973, Charlie formed the highly successful Jargon group, which went on to win the prestigious Letterkenny Folk Festival. This win led to the release of Jargons first single Bailieboro and Me. The band went on to record two more singles and then Charlie went on to pursue a solo career. During the following years Charlie worked with artists like Eleanor Shanley. He released two solo albums - Songs of the night and Charlie McGettigan - before joining forces with Paul Harrington and Brendan Graham to win the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest with Rock n Roll Kids. Charlie has since pursued a solo career releasing the albums , In Your Old Room and Family Matters. His songs have been recorded by many other artists including Mary and Frances Black, Daniel O Donnell and Eleanor Shanley to name but a few. These days Charlie tours regularly In Ireland and in other countries, in a solo capacity and with Irish comedy great, Niall Toibin. In November 2005 Charlie travelled to Nashville, Tennessee to work with the legendary producer Bil Vorndick. With Bil he recorded an album of thirteen tracks for release in September 2006. Bil has been nominated for no less than 42 Grammy Awards and has worked with artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Marty Robbins, James Taylor and Alison Krauss.
