If you’ve ever had a flight delayed, then you know that it’s the worst, especially when your eager to get home after a long vacation. Next time you get grounded, maybe there will be some musicians to entertain you. That’s what happened at the Newcastle airport when this group of musicians played some music to cheer up the crowd during a 2-hour flight delay, and it actually worked!
These 3 musicians give an amazing impromptu performance, to cheer up the crowd during a 2-hour flight delay.
Daoirí Farrell, Geoff Kinsella, and Robbie Walsh are musicians from Ireland. Back in 2017, the trio traveled to England to play a music festival, but on the way back go stuck with the dreaded flight delay,a whole 2-hours!
The delay made the tension in the air thick, the musicians could sense the negative energy and didn’t like it. Just like that, they decided they were going to do something about it. So they started to play, Kinsella was on the banjo, Farrell on the bouzouki, and Walsh on the bodhran.
The mood started to change, and the people quickly positively reacted to the music.
Who doesn’t love music? The people in the Newcastle airport clearly did, flight delay or not, people’s frowns turned to smiles as the music started streaming out.
The trio decided to play the popular Irish song “The Galway Girl,” mainly because they thought it would help to pick a song that everyone knew. The transformative music prompted strangers to clap and cheer, so the musicians carried on.
With the catchy tunes flowing, no one was thinking about the 2-hour flight delay!
Now instead of pouting about the flight delay, people were up out of their seats, tapping their feet, dancing and even singing along. The way it’s changed, you wouldn’t even think it’s the same crowd of people!
Luckily, Farrell’s father is an amateur photographer, he knew this was a special moment and started filming. Good thing he did, because the video went viral making it even that much better.
