Sean Smith, a special contributor to the Boston Irish Reporter, featured the Kelly Girls in the August 2018 publication. He interviews each of the Girls and also reviews numerous songs on their “May You Always” CD.
“It’s the kind of repertoire and presentation that would work at a St. Patrick’s Day bash, a mellow folk coffeehouse, or a fine summer’s evening on a town green, where people just want to clap and sing along, even get up to dance. Whatever the setting, though, the description “Celtic band” fits them quite snugly.” – Sean Smith

It’s not every day that The Kelly Girls land on the front page of the newspaper! We’re delighted to be featured in the Belfast Republican Journal. This weekend, The Kelly Girls will kick off the festival with a sing along for Seniors at the Crosby Center, and we are all ramped up to show them a great time.

The Kelly Girls are hitting the road again this weekend to continue their New England Tour. Belfast Maine is host to one of the regions largest and most attended Celtic festivals, Maine Celtic Celebration. In fact, K-Girls are helping to start off the festivities with a special 2:00 pm Friday Show at the Crosby Center, a performance funded by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEST). This show is for seniors and anyone in the community to attend.
Saturday at 1:30, The Kelly Girls take the main stage, nestled among fabulous dancers, fiddlers, and other bands. On Sunday at 1:15, they’ll be on the Steamboat Stage leading a traditional song circle.
Lot’s of other festivities happen throughout the weekend including highland games, activities for the kids, various workshops and lots of food and shopping too!
The Celebration takes place at two adjacent parks in downtown Belfast, Steamboat Landing and Belfast Common. Steamboat Landing is a 2.5 acre flat grassy park right on the waterfront, and serves as the southern terminus of the Belfast Harbor Walk. It includes the park, a gazebo, and The Boathouse. Belfast Common is located just uphill from Steamboat Landing, on a large, open hillside that overlooks Belfast Bay and provides a natural seating area for our Main Stage, with the beautiful bay as the backdrop. Directions and additional info here.
Hope we’ll see you in Belfast, Maine July 20, 21 & 22, 2018!

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.

What an incredible month of touring and playing music! The Kelly Girls are so grateful to the venues that booked us and to the droves of people who came out to hear our tunes and celebrate St Patrick’s Day all month long! We visited libraries, pubs and concert halls, and loved every minute of it. Thank you one and all.
The “Mariner’s Choir” was on hand at the Bull Run Restaurant Show to lend their voices for our song, “Mariner’s of England”, and our pal Bob captured video from this unique perspective!
