Celebrating Pride With Boston Mayor Marty Walsh

NewsPhotos

June 12, 2017

Charlestown is the oldest neighborhood in Boston and The Kelly Girls were there to help celebrate Pride Week along with Boston’s Mayor Marty Walsh. Fine Irish gentleman that he is, when he stepped on stage for a wee speech, he ignored the mic until he shook hands and said hello to each of us. During his address, Mel and Chris schemed to push up The Unicorn Song in the set list and then enlisted Mayor Walsh to help lead the dance! It was really sweet to see him learning the moves along with all the children in the park. What fun! Thank you to the organizers for all your work in bringing this Pride Concert Event to your neighborhood!

Amazing Things Concert Review

PhotosReviews

April 18, 2017

Well, where do I begin? A friend and I were the winners of 2 tickets to go spend a wonderful evening, starting with original songs by Nancy Beaudette, whose lyrics and guitar playing always move me. She sets the tone, with her friendly, smiling, welcoming stage presence, making the audience feel comfortable, relaxed, at home. Then enter the rest of the Entourage, equally at ease, friendly and fun. These gals can play, with tremendous virtuosity, humor, and skill. They manage to breeze thru tongue twisting sea shanties, ballads, and rousing drinking songs with ease, and never fail to lift your spirits, with brilliant harmonies. Chris Hatch especially showed her skills; it seemed she picked up a different instrument for each song, be it banjo, bodhran, guitar, harmonica, you name it, she can play it! These women are quite genuine with their Celtic/Irish/Scottish ditties, and equally adept at every other genre they take up. I was especially moved by the song, “Will You Go, Lassie, Go?”. Reminiscent of expert groups of the ’70’s, like The Shaw Brothers, Clancy Brothers, and what fun that this is an all-gal group. I look forward to their upcoming CD and hope there will be an opportunity for advanced sales. Thanks so much, Darlin’s, for a delightfully enjoyable evening! MORE MORE! Encore!

Topsfield Fair Festivities

News

October 6, 2016

thekellygirls2016“The night was clear and the stars were shining, and the moon came up so quiet in the sky” – Bill Staines‘ lyrics from ‘The Roseville Fair’ couldn’t have been more true in Topsfield this past Thursday night. The Kelly Girls tuned up and folks danced to the fiddle and the banjo all evening.

We are so pleased to introduce the newest Kelly Girl to our audience. Fiddler Melinda Kerwin has been a staple of the New England Celtic music scene for well over a decade, playing in bands DownDog and Mollie’s Misfits. When Mel jumped off the stage at the Topsfield Fair to gather the kids and lead the gestures while singing “the Unicorn” song, we knew she was a perfect fit. Welcome Mel.

melThanks to all of you who came out to celebrate with us at the Fair – and Thank you to the Fair Board for booking The Kelly Girls for this great gig.
