Errol is currently back home in Ireland and working
with Ted Ponsonby: a songwriter, producer and engineer
from Letterkenny in Donegal who also plays acoustic
and electric guitars, dobro and Hammond organ.
He is a noted session musician in Ireland having worked
with Maura O Connell, Dolores Keane, Freddie White,
The Henry Girls, Sean Keane, Andy White, Arty Mc Glynn,
and many other notable Irish musicians... including
a short stint with Van Morrison
Ted's inimitable skills on dobro and guitar are the
perfect foil for Errol's lived-in voice and care-worn
tales of life, love and luck.
Their new joint project
is a fairly eclectic roots album covering a fluid and
interesting collection of evocative and often introspective
songs in which Errol explores many of the genres that
have influenced him during his career.
