IRELAND 2024 TOUR!
I want you to come tour Ireland with me! For over 15 years now I’ve been traveling to Ireland. With each visit I fall in love all over again with this breathtakingly beautiful country, its lovely people and its inspiring music. I want to share this life changing experience with you!
Here’s how it all works. My next Inishfree Ireland Music Tour is scheduled for October 12-21, 2024. For all the details on my tour go to inishfreetours.com . They have been organizing these tours for years now and really know what they're doing when it comes to providing a relaxed and exciting experience. Inishfree Tours are small, the coach seats 24, so no one feels lost in the crowd. They have found comfortable small hotels in coastal villages where we all can be together for meals and music. We stay for 3 days each in 3 different places, taking day trips from there to see the sights and learn about Irish culture and history. So you can get cozy in one place for a few days and not have to pack up and travel every day. Every night we’ll be treated to some of the very best traditional and contemporry musicians. These folks are truly amazing. Plus I will play for you too!
Itineraries for this Inishfree Tour will be selected from Counties Cork, Kerry, and Clare, where you’ll find some of the most spectacular landscapes and coastal vistas anywhere. All along the way we’ll visit ancient stone circles, castles, ruins, museums about Irish culture and history, and a ferry ride or two if you’re game. You can expect us to be joined by archaeologists, authors and other interesting folks who will share their intimate knowledge of Ireland. And at the end of each day more music!
The cost of this unique adventure is $2,800-$2,900 for double occupancy. For a single it’s $3,300 - $3,400 but these are limited in number. If you’re traveling alone we will be happy to try and pair you up with another solo traveler to save you both some money. For this you get 9 nights accommodation, all travel on our 24 seat coach, ferry tickets, museum entrance fees, concerts, breakfast every morning and 3 group evening meals. You’ll be responsible for your travel to Ireland and we can give you some tips on getting the best airfare when the time comes. I strongly recommend that you plan on arriving the day before the first tour day so you can rest up from your flight before all the fun begins. We can also arrange a nice B&B for you in Bunratty the night before that shouldn’t be too expensive.
Are you in? Just contact Barbara Bowers at email@example.com with the name, address, phone number and e-mail address of everyone in your group. Barbara will send you an invoice and walk you through the process. Remember, there will only be 24 of us max, and some folks have already signed up. So don’t wait too long to book your spot. If you need more info, go to inishfreetours.com and find answers to any questions you have. Inishfree also has a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/inishfreetours/
I look forward to touring Ireland with you!
New Digital Releases!
"Traveler Too" Full Band & Solo Acoustic Versions
Available on all digital platforms
Traveler Too blew into my ear along the rocky coast of the Irish Sea in a forlorn place called Kilmore Quay. The wind was so strong that I could barely stand up against it and seagulls were flopping around in the sky. Two haunting monuments stand there dedicated to all the souls who never returned from the sea. I thought of all us vulnerable human beings traveling through space and time together just trying to find a way to get along.
I wanted to record a raw, edgy acoustic version as I perform the song live in concert. I also wanted more of a rocky band performance to reach a wider listening audience. So, I enlisted Dave Coleman as a one man band playing electric guitar, bass and drums.
Americana Highways says "In the full band version, the song instantly connects with the audience — we’re all travelers, we’re all trying to connect."
What an AMAZING Year 2022 has been!

"Dana Cooper’s new album I Can Face the Truth is radio ready, honest, vulnerable and an incredibly formidable effort. It is Cooper at the top of his songwriting form and creative expression, with arrangements so strong it allows each listener to feel he wrote the song specifically for them."
— M Music & Musicians magazine / Mmusicmag.com
"I Can Face the Truth is an unmitigated triumph, an album that should finally garner Cooper the credit he so decidedly deserves."
Lee Zimmerman - American Songwriter
"...lovely vocals, wonderfully written tales and impeccable instrumentation."
