We all are irish in St. Patricks: Harcourt Arms, Oxford. 17th March 2013. #Chamelions @FasTFatum

Yesterday was St. Patricks day, everywhere. Even in Oxford, at Harcourt Arms pub (our temple every sunday eve) and I bumped into Mark, great guy. He encouraged me to play and then Nigel saw me from the music equipment (busy man, good technician&musician). Both of them good people.
I arrived thinking at Harcourt Arms in a song, that I could sing "Chamelions", remembering friends from Donegal (James, Sarah & Finola) also Ennistymon (Jackie & Fergus) and so on, exchanging messages from early in the morning. Good mood, better singing atmosphere.
I made it:
#Chameleons
Captura de pantalla 2013-03-18 a la(s) 23.29.59 (2)Mainly because I also remember this song was recorded in Ennistymon, Co.Clare Art Gallery Studios in August 2011, with the great technician (musician too!) Quentin Cooper (in the arrangements doing a big job with instruments, mandolin, banjo and so on). (Ireland)
And in St.Patrick's day, everyone could be irish: I was a Green Chamelion, like the audience, Green Chamelions for one night.
Ps: This song was written in Tokyo it is why in the chorus it says "Dreaming with Chamelions in Tokyo" when Tokyo is everywhere in St. Patricks; you did not need to look for chamelions. There are plenty of them, green chamelions:) Like you & me.
 

Then, Mark Atherton played with Nigel Brown. Good pints, good st.patricks, good singing, better people.
