Susan is part of a new group called The Blue Belles.

They're billed as Ireland's premier vintage vocal trio.

The group consists of Susan, Kerry Ann Sheridan, and Carly Coonagh.

Ft. Myers was much more expensive than St. Petersburg too.

Many of you may already know this, but fun fact: Gavin Murphy co-wrote, produced, and arranged for Éabha's album Wildflower. He was also closely involved with her demo EP before she was in Celtic Woman.

Postcards from Ireland / Re: "Postards" Tour Cast Members
« on: April 28, 2021, 07:27:56 PM »
Welcome to the forum!

Thank you for your question. Mairéad announced in January on her social media channels that she was leaving the group to pursue solo work. Celtic Woman has yet to officially announce her departure or who will be taking over for Mairéad.

Chloë announced last year that her intention was to fulfill her commitment and complete the Celebration tour in 2021. The tour unfortunately had to be postponed again. She hasn't confirmed if her intention is to return in 2022 for the Postcards tour, although I think it's plausible that she will. If she does, Susan will most likely fill in for Chloë. Susan recently advised on a PBS "Virtual Visit" that she wasn't planning to tour full time.

Celtic Woman probably doesn't even know who will be taking over for Mairéad yet. They may not want to sign any new contracts until they're confident touring can resume in a profitable way.

As of yet we don't know who will be on the Postcards tour (or the Christmas tour, for that matter, should that tour proceed this year). I suspect our first clue as to who will be on the Christmas tour and/or Postcards tour will come from a venue that posts a group Celtic Woman photo that includes a new (or returning) member, followed by an official announcement by Celtic Woman a month or so before the tour.

Edel Murphy / Re: Motherland: Songs of 20th Century Women
« on: April 26, 2021, 09:11:15 PM »
This past weekend, I finally got to see Edel perform in Motherland (virtually, of course). That's a show I had on my list to watch out for pre-pandemic. It was going to take some good fortune for me to ever see it live and in person, but I paid attention for it just in case.

I'm glad they ultimately made it available to us online.

The band consisted of a keyboard, drums, cello, and guitar. There was a screen at the back of the stage displaying images to compliment the songs.

I greatly enjoy Ewan's arrangements and it's always an absolute pleasure to listen to Edel. It was a special treat to see her get into character during the songs. She read and acted out quotes before some of the songs as well. Edel sang a lot of different styles of music and did really well with all of them. She even channeled some country and gospel in some of the songs. The video resolution could have been a little higher, but it was good enough. The stream was stable and the audio was great.

Here's the set list from the show:

Motherland: Songs of 20th Century Women
1. Bread & Roses
2. Trouble in the Fields
3. Hard Times Come Again No More
4. Love For Sale
5. No Frontiers
6. Four Women
7. In the Ghetto
8. The Pill

9. Memories of Joan Baez (instrumental)

10. In the 1960s ... A Collection
11. She's Leaving Home
12. At Seventeen
13. Jolene
14. This Woman's Work
15. You Don't Own Me
16. Motherland
17. I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free

Postcards from Ireland / PBS Special / DVD Announcement
« on: April 17, 2021, 05:12:48 PM »
At the end of the online PBS "Virtual Visit" today (basically a live Q+A interview between a PBS host and Megan, Susan, Tara, and Chloë), they formally announced the Postcards from Ireland tour in (hopefully) 2022. They also announced that the Postcards from Ireland PBS special would be airing on PBS this December (2021).

Since the Killarney shows have been postponed to 2022, there are a few possibilities I can think of:
1. They're going to do a live recording in the fall at a different venue that hasn't been announced yet. I think that's extremely unlikely given all the uncertainty associated with containment measures.
2. They're going to do a live recording in a theatre without an audience. This still seems a bit risky considering how strict the lockdowns have been in Ireland.
3. They're doing a music-video-style DVD, where they pre-record the tracks, then record them performing at various places in Ireland (might be challenging since restrictions will still be in place for many months). This would be similar in format to Chloë's Walking in the Air DVD.
4. Video clips from past shows (ie. Celebration 2.0) (please let the DVD include an extensive documentary feature this time).
5. Video footage of scenery from Ireland during the music (this would be similar to what Tim Janis does with his DVDs and YouTube videos). The background music would be either new studio recordings or recordings of past studio performances/DVDs.

Looks like some PBS stations are picking it up in May.

Eabha's album had a pretty big debut on the charts.

It's currently sitting #1 on the Ireland iTunes World Albums chart and #2 on the USA iTunes World Albums chart and it peaked at #1!
