"Burning Bridget Cleary is an energetic Celtic group featuring traditional music and song. Both Rose Baldino and Genna Gillespie have been playing since they were 10. Lou Baldino, a veteran in the music business, had a guitar in his hands at age 5. Their "Everything is Alright..." album is top notch and shows the talent and pure fun this group had in making such a wonderful album. We absolutely love Burning Bridget Cleary's "Everything is Alright" album and would highly recommend this CD to add to your Celtic Music collection. This CD has the depth and character of musicians many years advanced to their young ages and we will be very much anticipating their future recordings. 5 Golden Celtic Radio stars for "Everything is Alright" along with the honor to be designated as our Celtic Radio Album of the Year for 2009!"
We will post a picture of the award plaque as soon as it comes back from our vendor.
