James Vincent Mcmorrow Plush Project at Forbidden Fruit

I am very excited about this little project I am doing at the moment with the soundest gentleman troubadour of today and 2012 Beardiest Beardy Beard award winner Mr James Vincent McMorrow.  James will be playing his first big gig of this year next Monday at the Forbidden Fruit Festival right off the back of playing choons around the world and getting his next record sewn together. This Is where we will attempting a worlds first In the name of  Craft. I will be on stage with James and his band putting the finishing touches to a James Vincent Plush doll which I will have started that day. I will be making the doll throughout his set and towards the end James will pop his pleck into the head of the doll before I close It with the last stitch. This pleck will act as the dolls soul and bring him to life. ( that would be so great If that happened so he could just get his coat and walk himself into the crowd instead of us trying to kill him)  We will then wrap him up and bag him and at the end of the gig we will throw him to the audience to the sound of climatic drumroll In a very wedding bouquet throwing style. If all goes to plan and he is not torn apart by hungry JVM fans someone there on the day will walk away with their very owned signed James Vincent McMorrow Plush Doll to snuggle up to. So if your a huge James Vincent McMorrow fan who likes to arrive early to the stage before a gig and you are very tall or have tall friends who may have played Rugby, Basketball, Hurling or Volley Ball then your In with a huge chance of grabbing this guy from the fresh summer air. 

Forbidden Fruit starts this weekend In the grounds of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin. June 2nd, 3rd & 4th so 3 amazing days of great music from some of the worlds most awesome bands and musicians.  We will be there on the Monday getting up to some serious craftiness. Hope to see you all there.
