“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.
