Pat finds himself in a bit of a jam in local pub
TUNE in to Pat Kenny – if you dare.
While he is more than at home on the airwaves, jamming with music legends isn't quite so easy – even though the veteran broadcaster seems to be enjoying himself.
He was paying tribute to a man described as the "Jimi Hendrix of the accordion", and who plays more than 20 different instruments.
So it was no trouble for Liam O'Connor to perform his new album at Finnegan's pub in Dalkey, Dublin, last night for special guests including the Newstalk broadcaster, who lives in Dalkey, and O'Connor's manager, 'Dragons' Den' boss Sarah Newman.
O'Connor played the special show to launch 'Live at Ronnie Scotts', a recording of a gig he played at the legendary London jazz club.
This is the fifth album offering from the Cork native, who in 2008 achieved the accolade of being crowned the Guinness Book of Record's Fastest Fingers in the World.
Last February the squeeze-box king played an intimate afternoon gig at the legendary Ronnie Scott's jazz club in London's Soho district. The club has also hosted The Rolling Stones, The Who, Nina Simone and – appropriately enough – Jimi Hendrix.
