Happy Thanksgiving

Season’s Greetings! There are several Celtic Christmas Concerts coming up in the next few weeks. I’ll be joined by Aoife Clancy, George Keith and Erik Wendelken at the Blackstone River Theatre in Cumberland, RI on December 1 and at the Cape Cod Cultural Center in South Yarmouth, MA on December 8. Details of these and other shows can be found on my calendar.

Is Ireland on your Bucket List?

The 2013 Celtica Heart of Ireland Tour, from May 24 to June 2, is now available for booking. This time we will explore the Southwest of Ireland, starting in Dingle and winding our way through the most scenic parts of Kerry, West Cork 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 be part of this unique experience of Irish music, culture and fun.

Christmas is coming!

Irish Music makes a great Christmas present. You can find a wide selection of CD’s at Celtica Music Shop. 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. Filled with fascinating and funny stories of Irish musicians on the road, it makes a wonderful Christmas present for the Irish music fan in your family. 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 the 2010 Christmas Celtic Sojourn at the Emerson Majestic Theater in Boston.

All the best, Robbie
