We had a wonderful time at the Maine Celtic Celebration! Belfast ME is a spectacular town and the people are incredible. We can’t wait to come back!

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!

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!
