From Father Ray to All the Fans - Missed Dublin? Come to Cork!


From the Official Facebook Page 

(We enhanced with photos by Paul Connors)
"It was such an enjoyable time for me to entertain in my first ever appearance at The National Concert Hall, Dublin on Sunday night November 13th!
A BIG thank you to all who made the night so memorable for me. 
 
First of all to the Pat Egan Promotion Team for spearheading the event, advertising it and promoting it.
To all the background team at The National Concert Hall for their help and courtesy throughout the evening.
The boys in the band: James, Andrew, Davey and Brendan for their beautiful sound and to Adrian Garry for all his help in bringing everything together. It was so delightful to see all the young chamber choir from St Oliver Post Primary School under the direction of Dara McSweeney, their harmonies were just spectacular, thank you Dara.


To my niece Tara Kelly for taking to the boards after many years and for sharing her beautiful voice, thanks Ta.
I think my special guest Maria Butterly Country was absolutely wonderful, she is such a gifted singer and songwriter, hope we can do it again Maria.
Thank you Paul Connors for all the lovely pictures and videos! So nice to have them!
A special thank you to all my family and friends who support me throughout the last few years and especially to my special pals from USA, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, Poland and UK who traveled over for this event, thank you for your friendship.

I now look forward to heading to the Opera House in Cork, in 3 weeks time, on December 5th. I am really looking forward to it.
Thank you all, once again!"

DVD A Christmas Concert From the Heart of Ireland

We purchased from HeartBeat Records in USA and received an early surprise! Surely we are not supposed to share early but you know what they say, better ask for forgiveness than for permission...only in this instance!

Here is the lovely cover, a match for the CD An Irish Christmas Blessing


The DVD is really beautifully done, full of songs, commentary and delightful live images from the December 2015 Concert in St. Brigid's Church, County Meath, Ireland. Family clips, heartfelt Christmas comments,  just really well done. The setting could not be more beautiful and so we couldn't help take a few screen shots to tempt fans from all over to purchase the DVD. While you are at HeartBeat Records, check out the great deal on both the DVD and CD together!

See this blog's "Shop" tab for links to all the places to buy: 

Also see Father Ray Kelly's Facebook page for a sneak clip of Little Drummer Boy.

Pictures pictures! From the DVD, enjoy!
