Info zu Some Old Someone...

Der irische Musiker Charlie McGettigan startete seine Karriere in den 60ern in verschiedenen irischen Rockbands. Mit seinem Umzug nach Dublin 1968 begann Charlie, sich dem Irish Folk zu widmen. 1973 gewann er mit seiner Gruppe Jargon beim berühmten Letterkenny Folk Festival, das vor ihnen bereits Bands wie Clannad und Pumpkinhead gewonnen hatten.

Gemeinsam mit Paul Harrington und Brendan Graham siegte Charlie für Irland beim Eurovision Song Contest 1994 mit den Song "Rock 'n' Roll Kids". Er veröffentlichte viele Solo-Alben wie z.B. “In Your Old Room”, “Family Matters”, “The man from 20” sowie “Stolen Moments” produziert in Nashville vom legendären Producer Bil Vorndick.

Charlies Songs wurden von vielen anderen Künstlern aufgenommen, darunter De Danann, Mary and Frances Black, Ray Lynam, Daniel O’Donnell, Sandy Kelly und Hal Ketchum - um nur einige zu nennen.

Heutzutage tourt Charlie McGettigan sowohl in Irland als auch außerhalb der Grünen Insel. Er moderiert seine zweistündige Kultur-Sendung "The Saturday Connection" im Shannonside/Northern Sound Radio. Charlie ist außerdem Mitglied der Vorstände der "Irish Music Rights Organisation" als auch des "The Dock Arts Centre" in Carrick/Shannon.
