Across the Border

Ireland 2009 - The Alien Abduction Tour

Less than six months after David and Kim decided to form Across The Border, the act went international as they touched down in County Mayo for three gigs and a jam session, around fifteen hours of music and an entirely spectacular weekend.

Away from the music they had time to take in their first Gaelic Football match, the thrilling Connacht Cup Final in which adoptive home town Kiltimagh defeated An Spideal of Galwey 11-10 with the last kick of extra-time.


Huge thanks go to Marion and Chris Glynn for organising just about everything, to Cathy Wood for jetting in from Edinburgh to join the fun and to the musicians, poets and everyone else in Kiltimagh and Balla that came to the gigs and made the weekend so memorable.
