So let the music keep your spirits high” is a line from a great song by Jackson Browne, that was made famous for many Irish by Christy Moore;  “Before The Deluge“.

Anyway down in Dame Street, down by the banks of the Lee, out on windswept Eyre Square, up by writers square, out with the blahs down in the Deise or making trouble up in Tír Conall…

Aswell as plotting and scheming, building tent cities, making, sharing out and eating food, doing the wash up, managing live streams, giving the odd interview to RTE or TV3, agreeing with those shaking jazz hands, chatting passionately with a stranger over a cup of tea, sitting in wonder, drying off wet socks, composing a poem… (the list goes on, all part of making Revolution) There has been a whole host of cracking music, from both people down living in the camps and also people who have come down to visit… So heres a bit of a list, granted it wont be a full one, of whats be going on…
