BB On the Record: Gary Curtin on his debut solo album, his musical journey and getting on his bike.

After a delay brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, Foden's Band's principal euphonium player Gary Curtin is finally celebrating the launch of his solo album, Éire Time, which features some stunning playing from soloist and band.

Gary chats about the new release and speaks about what life has been like over the past few months, from embracing technology to welcoming a very special addition to the family. He also reflects on his musical journey to date, from being handed a baritone as a youngster in Cork to performing with the likes of Black Dyke, Fairey, Foden’s and Wingates.

There's also a fantastically-catchy (and somewhat cheesy) Piece of the Podcast.

But first, what does it feel like to see that new solo album hitting the shelves?
