Sleep Deprivation

I had a discussion recently with my daughters about the importance of sleep. The brain moves memories to long term, or discards them as it sees fit, during sleep. Without sufficient sleep the brain may discard memories incorrectly or it might file memories in long term that need to be retrieved more quickly. Getting sufficient sleep reduces these risks.

Here’s an interesting video on the topic.

Thank You!

We wanted to thank all local radio stations who have supported the release of our album, ‘Wolf at the Door’.

Particularly, we are very grateful to Roddie Cleere.

In addition, we want to thank KCLR, WLR FM and Galway Bay FM for their continued airplay and support of the release.

We couldn’t do it without you, and thank you!!

Dit Daah Dit

Tomorrow’s World from 1969, where a chap speaks in morse code to a computer which subsequently types it out.

He also manages to get the computer to make a telephone call.

Very primitive version of Siri, these guys must have felt like they had brains the size of planets.



Update for 2018

Happy new year, and best wishes for 2018!

We have been taking a break over the Christmas period, but now we are back practicing, writing and recording new material for release in 2018.

We have some very special songs coming up, we are in no doubt that these songs are the strongest we have ever worked on, and we hope to have them finished in the first quarter of the year.

After that, we want to release an album of the material that we recorded over the past twelve months in as wide a variety of formats as possible, including the streaming services.

We’ll keep you posted!

Castlepalooza 2017

My Woolly Hat were delighted to be asked to play at one of Ireland’s best music and arts festival – Castlepalooza. We made our live debut at the festival on the 5th of August.

We are so very grateful to those who came to support us on our first live outing, particularly our families and our very best friends in the world. We hope we gave you a great set.

Here are some photos from the day itself:
