YouTubing on the fly…

Ciaran Mussen is a serious folk musician as well as a Green councillor on Newry and Mourne Council and their candidate for South Down. The sound is not great, and it could do with more work on the messaging side, but in what is rapidly becoming a crowded market, it is at least an attempt to use something more creative than the talk to camera format. Mussen has a popular base in the south of the constituency, and some of former Down councillor’s support in the north. H/T Crat!!
