Alex is posting more frequently in her blog now and she's enjoying doing her updates as vlogs.

It looks like Anabel Sweeny has been doing some modeling for White and Green, Rebecca Winckworth's family company.

Here's a video trailer for the show:

Hopefully in 2021.

I agree! It has great lyrics and a great sound!

"And the echoes of your melody will always live in these walls
And the lessons that you gave to me, before you can fly you must fall
So sing higher & higher, a thousand new voices ring through
If you sing out of the fire, the courage you need comes from you"

Edel Murphy / The Greatest Story Ever Cast
« on: September 20, 2020, 02:58:36 PM »
You can rent any of the Reboot Live shows from The Lock Inn now.

Edel Murphy was in The Great Story Ever Cast:

Mary is about to audition for the role of a lifetime, but she must first impress the formidable casting director, BB who knows what she wants and will not suffer fools. Mary must convince BB to see past her nervous exterior and recognise her talent and ability..

It's a short 21 minute play of fiction about Edel's character, Mary, trying out for the starring role in "the greatest story ever told." She's got her sights set high, but is she right for the role? Lol. It's up to a casting director nicknamed BB (
Beelzebub) to decide. I found it reasonably entertaining. It's a comedy, but like many things these days, there is a possibility the content could offend some people. The lighting and camera framing were pretty rudimentary. The writing was kind of clever. It was a treat to see Edel act and she even sings a little.

Some amazing friends and I had a group Meet and Greet with Alex today! It was wonderful to chat with her again. Getting to share that experience with awesome friends whom I haven't seen since spring (December, for one of them) made it even better!

With group Meet and Greets, you might choose to share the cost between participants. That way, it's even more affordable to chat with Alex!

Alex Sharpe / You'll Be In My Hat

Alex has a range of personally hand-made hats that will be available to purchase soon!

Will you be in her hat?

I finally got to meet Alex today (virtually)!

I was really nervous beforehand. This was only my 2nd zoom call (the first where I wasn't on mute) so I spent a few hours doing "sound check" and video check. That really paid off! I ran into a bunch of issues with the sound, lighting, webcam, etc but I was able to sort them all out before the M+G!

The M+G ended up being a really nice conversation with Alex. I got to chat with her, play her a bit of tin whistle (You Raise Me Up), and regular whistle (All Through the Night and The Mystery of Your Gift). She even made me relaxed and confident enough to sing for her. I can't sing well (at all) but she made me so comfortable I didn't mind trying in front of her.

This was WAY better than the rushed pressure-cookers that are the in-person Meet and Greets through PBS. Even at stage encounters, there's just too much time pressure and too many distractions for me to have a meaningful discussion with anyone. This M+G with Alex was definitely in my top 2 all-time, along with that epic in-person M+G I had with Chloƫ a few years ago.

I was really thrilled with the way this virtual Meet and Greet with Alex went. These virtual M+Gs are great way to both connect with and support our favourite performers. I'll certainly be doing more of them with Alex and I'll try to convince some of the other girls to offer them too!

Alex Sharpe / Personalized messages from Alex!
« on: September 07, 2020, 10:57:26 AM »
In addition to virtual Meet and Greets, Alex is offering personalized messages! They're great for special occasions, like birthdays and anniversaries. They can even be used to cheer someone up.

You can bring someone joy while supporting your favourite artist!

I'm so glad she's doing these. It's great to have an opportunity to support her.


Celtic Woman / Re: Songs that haven't been recorded..

Just thought of Tears in Heaven by Chloe on the Believe tour

I know my Love by MC and at least one other singer on the Emerald tour.

The Emerald version of Si do Mhaimeo counts as there was 2 singers compared the original having one

Technically Tears in Heaven was recorded by Chloƫ with Celtic Woman. I think it was on the German version of the Believe album.

calendar / 2020-09-04 - Sarah Rebecca: Every Tear (single)
« on: September 01, 2020, 09:48:36 PM »
Sarah Rebecca's releasing her new single Every Tear this Friday.

Apparently many viewers experienced the significant freezing issues that I did, but some didn't.

If some people didn't have issues, that means the problem wasn't at the source.

Since my Internet was fine and I didn't have trouble with any of the other shows I watched during my 8+ hour streaming marathon yesterday, it's likely that StageIt once again couldn't get a stable stream out to everyone.

Anyways, Deirdre and Matt have graciously decided they will post the concert (either clips or the full show) on Facebook and YouTube.

Eabha has posted some clips of the new tracks she's been working on!


I watched again closer to the TV screen. It does look like Edel. Her hair and makeup was really different than when I saw her live, so it was really tough to tell.

Deirdre Shannon / Deirdre (with Matt from The Celtic Tenors) (online)
« on: August 29, 2020, 05:12:43 PM »
On August 29, Matthew from The Celtic Tenors and Deirdre Shannon (with Brian McGrane and Sean Gilsenan on piano).

The show was live from Killua Castle, Ireland. The backdrop and lighting within the castle looked amazing, but unfortunately, the stream quality was absolutely horrendous.

I've had a LOT of bad quality experiences on StageIt. Some are problems at the source (bandwidth, Wi-Fi quality, Internet quality, etc). But in many cases, performers say their signal seems to be getting out, but StageIt just isn't getting it to viewers.

This is the worst StageIt quality I've seen since that time StageIt let Mairead Nesbitt do her whole show thinking it was getting to us when it wasn't.

This is not an issue on my side. Multiple browsers affected. Multiple devices affected. Almost everyone in the stream was complaining of issues. I watched a bunch of streams today and only had brutal issues with this StageIt show. Refreshing the page sometimes helped for a few seconds, then the picture and/or audio froze again.

I didn't hear / see more than 20% of any song in this show and had to refresh several times a minute just to get anything at all.

As bad as StageIt is, I think their network connection at the source was at least part of the problem tonight. The HD stream was too much data for the network to keep up with or it kept dropping the signal. Whatever the reason, it seemed like signal starvation was happening for most of the show.

The Byrne & Kelly stream I watched shortly after Dierdre's stream was WAY better stream quality. No choppiness or freezing at all.

I attached some screenshots of when there was actually picture on the screen, since there wasn't much else to do.

It did get a little better towards the end of the show, but overall, unacceptable level of quality.
