It’s a nice feeling to be near the top of the heap, especially when it concerns my songwriting and the effort it takes to create and produce the work. The 35th Mid-Atlantic Song Competition just released its results, and “Reeds On The River” is a FINALIST in the Folk Acoustic Category.
I wrote “Reeds On The River” while on a holiday in Ireland. We rented a narrow boat and slowly chugged along the Barrow Line section of the Grand Canal – not too far from Dublin. The boat was 6′ wide and 50′ long, and very heavy, with living quarters below deck. As we floated along the canal, the cattails and lily pads were sucked under the water towards the boat, and danced back above the waterline as we passed. It was like a beautiful bow, a reverence, a consensus that there are things we certainly share, and yet so much more that only time and wisdom can reveal.
The Kelly Girls included this song on their CD, “May You Always”, released a year ago.

Delighted to present The Kelly Girl’s original song and first official video, “Daffodils”, inspired by the poem “I wandered lonely as a cloud” by William Wordsworth. Band members Aisling Keating and Nancy Beaudette collaborated on the writing of this song, adapting the poem to an upbeat melody and adding a very happy jig! We hope you find fields of joy every day of the year.
We’ve been keeping our behind-the-scenes activity rather quiet these past few months, but we’re ready to let the secret out. The Kelly Girls have recorded a CD!! There are 13 tracks, seven of which are original songs! We can’t wait for you to get your copy and share the news with your friends.
You can download the mp3s at via the CDBaby store on our website, or at iTunes.
