What an amazing night last night!  We had a packed gallery for Melanie Hutton's 11-person band, and I got to have a featured role on one of the songs... got to do my tinwhistle percussive flourishes, which I love.  I also served as the opening act for the concert, so to speak.... reading chapters from my book, sharing tangential stories and taking questions from the audience.  Many thanks for your participation and your laughter!  Also glad to have met many new people through the night.  It was a very smooth experience for me, and I'm greatly looking forward to (instead of dreading) future signings and readings!  I hope to share some portions of the night with you later in the week.  Until then, here's a picture from the considerate Boz Nobel:
