Celtic Christmas Concerts

There are several concerts coming up in the next few weeks, beginning with a series of Celtic Christmas Concerts in Massachusetts. I’ll be joined by Aoife Clancy and George Keith at the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse in Franklin, on December 3, the Homegrown Coffeehouse in Needham on December 10, and the Old Ship Coffeehouse in Hingham on December 11. Accordion wizard, Jimmy Keane will join Aoife and myself for shows in New Hampshire and Maine on December 12, 13 and 14.

Details of these and other shows can be found on my calendar.

The May 2012 Celtica Heart of Ireland Tour is now available for booking. This time we will explore the Northwest of Ireland, starting in Donegal and winding our way through Sligo, Mayo, Connemara, Galway and Clare-some of the most beautiful countryside you will ever see. We will visit all the interesting sites by day and have a great traditional music session every night. Please don’t leave it too late if you want to join us for the trip of a lifetime.

Clean Cabbage in the Bucket, the book I co-authored a couple of years ago is now available as an eBook from Amazon.com. If you prefer a paperback version, it’s available at Celtica Music Shop.

Irish Music makes a great Christmas present. You can find a wide selection of CD’s at Celtica Music Shop.

As an early Christmas present to you all, there are 3 FREE MP3s of my Christmas songs available at robbieoconnell.com. There is also a video of the Wren Song on Facebook from last year’s Celtic Christmas Sojourn.

Sunday Afternoon Concert

I’ll be joining Mick Moloney and friends on Sunday, November 6 for a fundraising concert at St. Malachy’s Church, 1429 N. 11th St. Philadelphia. It starts at 2:00 p.m. and it is always a wonderful afternoon where you can expect the unexpected.

Ooops! Wrong Date in Calendar

The concert at the Hurdy Gurdy folk club in Fair Lawn, NJ is on Saturday Nov 5 and not as listed in my concert calendar on Nov 4. There was a mix up about this date going way back to the beginning and I only noticed it today. Anyway, Aoife Cancy and I will be there on Saturday. It’s at the Fair Lawn Community Center, 12-10 20th St. Fair Lawn, NJ. Info 201-794-5372.

I have some concerts this week and next in Oklahoma and Texas. Also some shows in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and New Jersey right after that. All the details can be found at my calendar.
