“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.
Thanks 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.

Starting with an outdoor concert on Friday, August 12th, on the green in Shirley Center, MA, The Kelly Girls will be part of the Summer Concert Series sponsored by the Shirley Charitable Foundation. Bring your lawn chairs and picnic baskets, or purchase snacks from venders.
On Saturday, August 13th, head on over to the Bolton Fair in Lancaster, MA. The Girls will take the stage in the Pavilion Tent from 2pm to 4pm. There are tons of fun things to do at the Fair, so come early and stay late!
We’ll be packing up quick and jumping in our vehicles for a private gig in Vermont directly after playing at the Fair. Busy gig weekend, but The Kelly Girls would have it no other way.
Do you have a private affair that needs some celtic entertainment? Let us know!!

Jon Pappalardo was in the audience at our recent show and wrote a wonderful review of our performance. It’s so nice to hear praise and kind words for our efforts. Thanks Jon!
“I’ve been a fan of Beaudette’s music for a few years now but I’d yet to see her live until this April 23 concert. I had a feeling the show would be special; her latest album South Branch Road is exquisite, but I didn’t know how far it would exceed my expectations.”
“The cultural immersion kicked into high gear when The Kelly Girls took the stage in the second half. The four-piece Celtic band, of which Beaudette is a part along with Christine Hatch, Aisling Keating and Theresa Gerene, performed songs that traversed centuries, generations and even ancestry.
Their set was richly layered with historical significance and a captivating approachability. They opened strong, with their tight harmonies giving way to infectious fiddle-drenched instrumentation.”
“I came away having witnessed a unique bond between friends making music simply out of passion for the art. The Kelly Girls, the epitome of a tightly in synch ensemble, left me in the best possible place – wanting more and more. If you ever get a chance to see them live, hopefully accompanied with a Beaudette solo set, I’m sure you’ll come away feeling exactly as I did that evening. Make it a point to seek out a performance; I know for sure you won’t regret it.”

Another in a series of features about BCMFest 2016 that will be appearing in this blog right up until the festival (January 8 and 9, if it’s not on your calendar yet), so as to better acquaint you with the events, activities and personalities that make up BCMFest.
If you go to a Celtic music festival with the hope — no, make that the expectation — of being able to join in a song or two, well, you should get yourself to The Attic at 1 p.m. during BCMFest’s Dayfest (January 9): That’s when The Kelly Girls and òran mór will lead a good hour’s worth of sing-along songs.
BCMFest (Boston’s Celtic Music Fest), a program of Passim, showcases Greater Boston’s best musicians, singers, and dancers from Irish, Scottish, Cape Breton, and other Celtic traditions. BCMFest hosts an annual weekend-long festival in January that spotlight New England Celtic musicians and singers.
The Kelly Girls are honored to be included in this year’s line up, sharing the stage with the talented duo Oran Mor.
