The Kelly Girls took to the high seas on Sept 10th aboard the Nova Star Cruise Ship! We entertained travelers destined to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia from Portland, Maine on this wonderful ferry equipped with all the amenities!
Of course we found amazing food too, and new friends to share it with (thanks Tom & Juanita)! If you’re in the Yarmouth area we highly recommend Red Cap Restaurant, Dennis Point Cafe and Rudders Brew Pub! Yes, the beer was excellent!!
We spent a wonderful day at Hawk Beach and then boarded the Nova Star Sunday morning to entertain on the return trip.
We’re already looking forward to playing on the ferry again and hope you’ll join us next time!
p.s. We just got ourselves a ‘selfie stick’!!! Hope you enjoy these few photos.
The Williamstown Fair is the oldest annual fair in Canada. Situated on pristine grounds located in the historic village of Williamstown Ontario, the Williamstown Fair continues to provide a unique venue for showcasing Glengarry’s agricultural and musical heritage. This year, The Kelly Girls, a celtic band including regional favourite Nancy Beaudette, performed on the Centre Stage. This was certainly a summer highlight for TKGs!

It was a marathon that started at the ‘top of the mornin’ and went on to the ‘midnight hour’ filled with jigs and reels, sing-alongs and step dancers, and hundreds of spirited folks sippin’ the foam off a Guinness! St Paddy’s 2015 was celebrated with vigour and pride. Amidst the sea of green, The Kelly Girls whistled and fiddled all the favourites tunes of the day. If you were at Finnegan’s Pub in Hudson, Ma, or Waxy O’Connor’s in Woburn, we were thrilled to be part of your merrymaking. Sláinte!

The Kelly Girls played a sold out show at the Harvard General Store last Friday night. It was an early start to St. Paddy’s week, and the first of four shows for TKGs. The General had a terrific menu including a fabulous corn beef panini! Irish dancing was certainly a highlight! Our guest Ciara McGillivray put on quite a wonderful solo Irish dance performance inspiring the crowd to jump to their feet to give it a try themselves! There were tons of prizes, including TKG T-shirts, beautiful beer mugs, bumper stickers, gift certificates and St Paddy’s paraphernalia! If you missed the show and want a beer mug, you can get one here! Oh, and if you missed the rousing rendition of the Unicorn Song – you’ll have to come out to one of our show on the 17th! Check out our schedule here.
Here are a few pictures of the evening.

The Bull Run Restaurant in Shirley, Ma is one of the oldest traditional taverns in the state, and a hot spot for live music in Central Mass. The Kelly Girls lit up the Tap Room in mid-February for winter weary diners. Here are a few photos from the evening.
