ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Seamus Kennedy, originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, has been entertaining audiences all over the United States for the past 27 years. With a ready wit and a vast store of songs, he travels from Alaska to Florida, Maryland to California, performing for audiences which range from Popes and presidents to bartenders and bricklayers, from college students to kindergartners.

"In every dealing that I have had with Mr. Kennedy, he has been indeed fabulous. My highest recommendation is provided."
~ Kim Gardner, U.S. Army War College, Carlisle, PA

In concert or festival, in pub or club, in colleges or high schools, Seamus Kennedy has the repertoire and the ability to make folks forget their cares for a while, to relax and enjoy themselves. He encourages the crowd to sing along to silly lyrics and daft ditties or act out the choruses of children's songs. When he plays a lively Irish jig or a reel, Seamus will often coax someone to jump up and dance to the music of his guitar or bodhrán - to the delight - and often amazement - of their friends. His audience participation songs and tongue-twisters have amused the ablest of participants and the nimblest of tongues.

The Title Doesn't Lie!
A smile and a tear it is...

We have been fans of Seamus for some years now, and are always a bit giddy when we got a new album, especially since the Pub we would go to see him perform had closed a couple years ago. His performances were always the perfect "night out with the pals" experience.

This album fits right in with our collection of Seamus' music. Heartfelt ballads (like "Wilderness Letters" and "Grace") , humorous tunes ("The Chemist Drinking Song", "The Tumbler"), songs that you just can't get out of your head for one reason or another ("The Scottish Song", "Barrett's Privateers")- there's something for any mood.

As always, Seamus is wonderfully entertaining. BRAVO!
The selections are both funny and serious. The words appropriate. The delivery, wonderful, heartfelt and superb. An excellent choice for the Irish in all of us.
