Black is the Colour of Hope

To mark the first anniversary of Colin’s death we’d like to share ‘Black is the Colour of Hope’, a beautiful song that Colin had started work on the melody with Chris McDonald and Rod da Rosa towards the end of 2015. Chris and Rod finished the song after Colin died, so we invited them to perform it at the memorial service last year.

Here’s the video of that emotionally charged performance. Chris and Rod have generously agreed to let us make the recording available on Bandcamp (https://neroschwarz.bandcamp.com) and downloadable for a small donation.

All proceeds will go to Brú Columbanus, the charity that Colin’s family chose to support (https://give.everydayhero.com/…/in-memory-of-colin-vearncom…) as they provide incredible support to families of those who are in crisis in Cork’s hospitals.

We are all striving to transform our grief over Colin’s passing into love and gratitude for his life and music. In our process of letting go of the darkness and turning towards beauty and light, his songs are our daily companions and strength. Please share.

    Colin Mate, I miss you. I once told you ‘Your Music is the footnote to my life’, it still is. Any Colour You Like is playing now and it takes me to a place I like, your music will always do that for me. Love and X’s. Andy Beesley
