2017 started with the release of the album, and performances by, Sirene 1009, and closed with a tour by Eris 136199 (plus my first Kickstarter!). On the way, I got to be sideman to one of my former student’s projects, and play (unbelievably) for the first time in Seoul.

Here’s to 2018!

Sirene 1009’s Cork performances and workshop presented with funding from the Arts Council of Ireland, and support from FUAIM Music at UCC, UCC Department of Music, CIT Cork School of Music and the Cork Improvised Music Club.

Sunday, April 12, 2015, at 9:00pm: a rare solo performance by Han-earl Park (guitar) at gulpd (Triskel Arts Centre, Tobin Street, Cork, Ireland). Admission free.

It seems a long time since I last played solo (a.k.a. duet between guitar and guitarist) because… well, it was a long time ago and a long way ago. (Let’s see what it’s like to play catch-up with an old partnership.)
