I'm still in Dublin and although we've had great weather here for a change this summer, it didn't hold out today! Got my hair blow-dried, went into the city for a meeting in sunshine and came out to torrential rain. Have arrived home like a drowned cat..
Hoping everyone in the USA and Canada are enjoying lots of summer sunshine. Perfect time to show off a thunderhead T-Shirt, Declan has quite a few of them now online here - http://www.celticthunder.ie/shop/clothing
I'd like to wish our new singer Emmett O'Hanlon a Happy Birthday today.
You will all get to meet Emmett on the Cruise or on the Symphony Fall Tour. In the interim, here's are links for you to find out a bit more about him.
Hello to you all.
Carolyn here. I thought it was now about time that I dropped you a wee line or two to say a big thank you and to let you all know how much your lovely letters, notes, words, mass and sympathy cards have meant not just to myself and Sarah but all of George's brothers and sisters.
Dear Celtic Thunder Fans,
I would like to thank you for your patience and understanding while we have been working on the CD, DVD & Photo Album as a tribute to George Donaldson. This has been a very tough project for us to work on but I am really thrilled with the finished program, I think it really is a fitting tribute to George and indeed all the principal singers who have performed with Celtic Thunder since we released our first Celtic Thunder DVD in 2008.
So here is where we are at with the tribute to George; the CD was delivered to my office last week and the DVD master is finished and has been sent for manufacturing and we have just put the finishing touches to the Photo Album. We will make an announcement in this months edition of the Celtic Times and will confirm the release date then.
Had a lovely Easter with the family in Dublin, really enjoyed it, hope you all had a lovely Easter too.
Emmet Cahill, gentleman that he is, has graciously moved around other commitments to enable him to join us on the Celtic Thunder Cruise this year!
Emmet will join Colm, Keith, Neil & Ryan in the "Celtic Thunder's Greatest Hits" shows onboard as a tribute to George. He will also being doing 2 solo shows and a fun show with Colm & Emmet together on the Festival Stage on the pool deck - lots of laughs in that one!
