The Emerald Revellers come to America
The Emerald Revellers “Rhythms of Ireland” Tour 2008 creates a unique
blend of Irish music, song and dance combining traditional styles with the
more modern expression of dance made popular by stage shows such as
Riverdance. You will be taken on a journey from the days of the wandering
dance master to an awesome exhibition of modern Irish dance that will
delight your heart. With a cast of 35 performers aged 5-50(ish), it is
lively, energetic, fun and, above all, a spectacular 2-hour show.
‘Rhythms of Ireland’ is a genuine, living expression of a culture and
heritage, which is very much alive and celebrated by performers both on
and off the stage. It is an exhibition which lends itself to all
occasions, equally at home on the world stage or knocking sparks from the
flags in your grandfather’s kitchen!

“Making Friends” is the third album from the Irish Rock outfit Ceann.
Based loosely out of Pittsburgh, PA, Ceann continue to be one of the
busiest bands in North America averaging over 220 shows a year for the
third straight year since their inception in the fall of 2005. For their
latest album Ceann welcomed a small handful of guest musicians into the
fold, including Irish troubadour Seamus Kennedy, Accordionist Vladimir
Mollov, and Alto and Tenor Saxophone players Greg Sloan and Dan Rusnak.
Also appearing on the album is fiddle player Patrick Mannion who has been
playing occasionally with Ceann since September of 2007. The album was
recorded entirely in Pittsburgh at Mr. Smalls Recording with the help of
engineer Larry Luther. Although Ceann are Pittsburgh natives “Making
Friends” is the first album they’ve recorded entirely in Pittsburgh.
“Ceann have made a
themselves as one of the biggest Irish bands on the east coast on the
appeal of their Barenaked Ladies like sense of humor ....”
“Making Friends” is the by far the best sounding and most well-produced
effort yet from Ceann. All of their albums have been self-produced and
it’s easy to hear the musical growth from their first album “Almost Irish”
in 2006 to their latest musical adventure “Making Friends.” From a band
better known for their songs about Pirates and Vikings than for heartfelt
songs of love, life, and Ireland, Ceann have opened a window into their
appeal as an Irish band that hadn’t yet been featured on their two
previous efforts. Ceann have made a name for themselves as one of the
biggest Irish bands on the east coast on the appeal of their Barenaked
Ladies like sense of humor and fun originals like “Pretty On the Inside”,
“The Worst Pirate Song”, and “Pittsburgh Makes Me Drunk.”

"The Secret Voyage"
The latest Blackmore's Night CD, The Secret Voyage, features 12 songs by
legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore (founding member of Deep Purple), charismatic vocalist / mult
instrumentalist Candice Night, and their band of minstrels. Weaving
together the haunting melodies of the past with mystical lyrics and modern
day arrangements, the CD is rumored to be the best Blackmore's Night CD to
date. This past decade has seen Blackmore's Night win multiple awards for
their Renaissance / Folk / Rock music - as best album, best vocal album, a
PBS special as well as numerous gold records internationally and entries
on the Billboard charts. All of us have a desire for our Secret Journeys -
we hope that you will take this one with Blackmore's Night and find that
their music brings you to a place of inner peace and happiness.
"All of us have a desire for our Secret
Journeys - we hope that you will take this one with Blackmore's Night..."
Forged by a common love of Renaissance and Middle Age music, former Deep
Purple/Rainbow guitarist Ritchie Blackmore co-founded Blackmore's Night
with vocalist Candice Night in 1997. Over the course of five high
internationally charting studio albums--four gold records, awarded the
Number One Vocal album of the year for two of their releases, music video
awards, several live and compilation releases, and many sold-out tours
around the planet-they have truly perfected their signature blend of
renaissance and folk music with an effective rock and roll flourish.
