Katie's Waiting by Eric Eckhart

Writing "Katie's Waiting" got me back into music after a long quiet spell and changed my life. I have played it at nearly every show since (including a nervous afternoon performance on Irish television, TG4) and it always brings me back to my many years living in Ireland. My dear friend Richie Heffernan made this video in 2006, shot in one day across Dublin starting at 4:30am on O'Connell Bridge.
