You might have seen him on the streets of Sofia lately: red-haired, cool dude, with an acoustic guitar in his hands, and a strong voice.
He travels, plays and sings for his own pleasure (it seems). He’s now in Bulgaria and you can go and listen to his music in the Sofia music clubs — but sometimes on the street, too.
First time we heard him, it was when we were walking with Ani on Vitosha street, in the Winter. Two days ago we heard him sing again, on almost the same place. We stopped to listen for a while…
…then, after his last song, I asked him, where’s he from. Once we knew Jamie is from Ireland, it was quite obvious we’ll ask him to sing us some Irish song, since we’re big fans of Irish music!
So, the next song is “by fans’ request”:
Jamie Mc Donald: Fiddlers’s Green (shot with a Canon S5 IS camera)
you can listen to a few tracks from his next album, The Way It Was (where he performs with Boyana Zhelyazkova, violin). I like the music, a lot!
Stop and listen for a while, if you happen to “bump” into him somewhere. You never know — maybe Jamie will soon leave for Ireland… or for the next destination on his travel list?… :)
PS Thanks for the music, Jamie! It was so nice meeting you! :-)
