You can access the St Patrick's day gigs Part 1 and 2 here!

This is for readers and listeners who would like to watch the St Patrick's Day gigs 2021, and for those who just want to tip their hat to the music and writing I'm producing. Part 1 is me solo doing a host of Irish and trad songs and Part 2 is me and Kerry and all the extra nonsense that comes with the two of us in the same room with a camera on. The only other benefit that goes with this tier is my undying gratitude. For the regular live gigs, check out the next tier. I appreciate you for appreciating what I'm doing, it means a lot. So you'll get a virtual hug for your support!

Listen
I'll play 2 live streamed solo gigs per month and share them with you exclusively. I'll give at least 48 hours notice, but if you can't watch live don't worry. You can catch up any time and you'll have access to all the past live streams I put up. Sometimes me and Kerry will do a special duo gig, but there's no predicting when that'll happen really (except Christmas and st Patrick's Day) I can take requests (but if you know me you know that you can throw em at me and see what sticks, I can be very slippery....) and maybe even learn your favourite tunes. 

Watch
You can also access content which I video and upload as the creative mood takes me - so stuff to do with my writing projects and my new music projects - behind the scenes content. 

Read
I'll share something with you weekly: articles, stories, anecdotes, reviews, whatever comes along.

Moving up a tier, your contribution is really enabling me to fulfill these various projects I have going. As such an important part of the process, I'm opening up my virtual door to you and encouraging you to influence me. 

Music
As well as the two live solo streamed gigs a month, I will be posting 1 video of a song per week recorded at home exclusively for you. These will be my favourites and can be yours too. I can learn songs for you and you'll have access to my library of sings as they build up on my private YouTube channel. I'll also post behind the scenes content of live Goose gigs and stream them if the conditions (WiFi access, battery life in phone ha ha) etc are suitable. 

My original music project is an album of folk songs I'm recording with producer and long time co-conspirator Gaz Williams. I'll post some footage from the studio with updates and footage of the recording process.

I'll share Spotify playlists of tunes that are bringing me through, you can recommend playlists to me.

Writing
As well receiving the bloggy stuff, I'll keep you updated on my writing projects which you are supporting by being amazing :)
At the moment these are
a) putting together an illustrated version of my short story collection and hosting a launch and gallery exhibition
b) I'm writing a play which I'm going to try and get on the stage, so you can follow that process with updates from me,
c) I'm also writing a collection of folk tales which I want to develop as storytelling performances as well as publishing. 
Who knows how these will go, but if you know me you'll know that I don't do things by halves and you can follow my progress, and be in contact with me during this journey. Your donation will be instrumental in enabling me to keep these creative plates spinning, so you'll have my undying love and gratitude too :)

About Colum Sanson-Regan

Welcome!
You can join me here as I build up my multi-media content, my writing, live gigs, my stories, song demos, articles, studio videos and real time updates from my projects.
You can help me keep my books, writing and music going and I can connect with you.
I'll share footage of the creative process and offer you discounts to events and my stuff, and give you free performances and gigs too :)
There are different levels of subscription which give you different amounts of access. 
Your patronage will help me get producers, artists, techies, script editors etc on board of my projects and help to get them done and out into the big bad world.
 For your contribution I'll share a whole range of stuff with you, as well as the finished product. Just check out the various tiers. I'll know that I'm sharing with people who are interested and invested, not just pumping footage out on Facebook or Instagram as scroll feed and hoping for likes. Doing that is not conducive to me giving a shit about what I'm sharing, and more often than not just gets me down. But if you join me here, you'll get the stuff I really care about, and I can use Facebook for uploading videos of my face on the body of Chuck Norris. 
Does that sound good? It sounds great to me, let me explain where I'm coming from...

I've been making music professionally since I was 19, and wrote my first novel 6 years ago. All through my life I've found the act of creation as quite a solitary experience. It takes a long time to conceive and create an album or a book. With music, even if you build a team around you, it's all down to you. Only your own energy and belief, time and money will get the project completed. The pace of my completion of these projects or even them seeing the light depends on this vital element: how much I can afford to pay other people before the product is ready to sell, and how much time I can afford to spend on the project. This has been a sticking point in the past, causing projects to slow down and sometimes even have to be abandoned. 
If it does see the light, then that creation is deemed worthy, or a success or not, depending on the number of sales you get immediately after you release your project. There is a brief period of interaction with the outside world about your project/product, and then it's swept away.
You can continue to try and engage  - but because it's only based on that product, the engagement becomes repetitive unless you are naturally good at self promotion. Which I am not. Then you switch off, you isolate yourself to start another long process.
And the whole thing is repeated again.

But as I've gone on I've found that people, myself included, love to be closer to a project they personally feel is worthwhile and understand that the process can be as enlightening and interesting to engage with as the final product. I love deadlines and having creative promises to fulfill. It keeps me focused and energised. If you join me you will be not only be enabling me to work on these projects and bring them to fruition, you will also be able to engage with and influence the creation process. And this is exciting to me. Not being on this journey alone. 
So I'm excited about it and would love you to join me.
Check out the irons I have in the creative fire and see if it's something you can get on board with. 
By joining me you are making the whole thing possible.
