In My Virtual Campfire Episode 7, I find Joy. Figuratively and in reality, I have a joyful conversation with Joy Booth.
Joy Booth and I talk about a spiritual journey to Peru and how that impacted her music.
Joy is an International folk/blues musician, singer and songwriter from Navan, Ireland in County Meath. County Meath is the heritage capital of Ireland. It is where the high Kings of Ireland lived. She has opened shows for many musical luminaries, including Wallis Bird, Cathy Davey, Pilgrim St, Declan O'Rourke, Mary Coughlan and The Lost Brothers.
Joy has collaborated with an eclectic mix of artists over the years, performing and recording as a band member with the likes of Saramai & The Swords, Eugene Donegan, The Handsome Boatmen and The Paddy Smith Band. She is also currently a proud member of 7-piece ska/reggae outfit, "IF".
She explains the inspiration behind her new album and she plays us a lovely song called "Living Room." Joy's humor as well as her caring heart come through in her music and in our conversation. Joy's new album, "All You Were" is due out in 2021.
In our conversation, we mention Roberto Perero. You can find his beautiful harp music here.
