If you You Tube ‘Paul T Wickham’
you will find a collection of various songs i recorded very simply on our family Ipad
over the last few years
including some originals (of my own composition)
The quality and sound varies greatly but some are not too bad, i hope
If some seem a little tired and sad then they may be from post my ten year Dementia/ Psychiatric Care Ward Nursing phase which was always not so lively (ie up to 2015)
It is interesting to compare them with my more light hearted PAUL’S PARTY PIECES cd
which is from way back in 1999 when I was known in JCM General Hospital, Blanchardstown as the ‘Singing Care Assistant’ (then age 36)
My voice has deepened since then.
On the other hand, some of my most hilarious and liberating live concerts/sing songs were in the setting of care of people with dementia and their often broken-hearted families
“Happy you who mourn, you shall be comforted” – (Matthew 5)
Our old Irish teacher in Marian College impressed me deeply with his conviction.
I remember the day in 1981 his face fell when i told him i was doing pass Irish for the leaving in order to make time for other subjects in which you could more easily gain points.
He loved Irish. I think he was from Connemara. God bless him.
One of his great mottos was:
“If you throw enough muck at a wall
then some of it is bound to stick”
So here goes with a few splats of my own muck…..
(His other great saying was: “How the mighty have fallen”)
A lovely cd of light hearted songs sung by me with guitar in now available
for charity performance
My new e mail is firstname.lastname@example.org for more info
These public domain covers for charity performance are from 1999 thanks to Paul Gallagher and Mary of Kilcar recording studios, in Donegal.
Many who know me will detect the influence of the late, great John Collins, God rest him now, and my very talented brother Mark of Donegal Camera centre, Donegal town
I could post you a complimentary copy of the not-for-profit cd if you like
