Venue: Pleasance Cabaret Bar - 8:00pm
Admission: £8.00 (£7.00 concession)



"Colum Sands has performed in over thirty countries around the world, confirming the universal appeal for the songs and stories with which he observes the minute and often humorous details of life.

A member of the internationally renowned Sands Family from County Down, Colum established his reputation as a songwriter with the release of his first solo album, Unapproved Road in 1981. Songs like Whatever you say, say nothing, and Almost every circumstance were soon in the repertoire of artists from Billy Connolly to Maddy Prior and June Tabor.

His second album The March Ditch inspired a special BBC television documentary and songs like The man with the cap and Looking the loan of a spade confirmed his unique ability to observe locally and appeal universally.

On his travels around the world he soon discovered that many of his songs had arrived before him, carried by other singers in the folk process and on recordings by fellow performers like Andy Irvine, Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy, Roy Bailey, Mick Hanley, Gerard van Maasakkers, Rosemary Woods, Iain Mc Intosh and Enda Kenny. "

"...Colum's gift is of breaking down cultural barriers through choice words and eloquent music... "

John O'Reagan, Rock 'n' Reel


...a marvellous tongue in cheek sense of humour, Colum Sands is a very talented songwriter with an ear for tuneful melodies and an ability with words which enables him to come up with some wonderful lyrics...

Ivan Martin, Sunday World


...a wonderful evening of entertainment. A natural witty storyteller, Colum charmed the audience with his lively and evocative melodies, colloquial lyrics and gentle humorous tales of everyday life in the past and present. Not only that, but the man has a wonderful voice and is no mean guitar picker...

Jim Brough, Folk on tap

Whatever you say, say nothing,
When you speak about you know what,
For if you know who should hear you,
You know what you'll get,
They'll take you off to you know where,
For you wouldn't know how long,
So for you know who's sake,
Don't let anyone hear you singing this song

It's credited to Colum on the Sands Family Collection album and I've also seen it referenced as such elsewhere.

If I recall, it's usually Colum who perfroms the song at solo gigs too.
