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.

"His rapport with the crowd provides entertainment above and beyond that of a normal singer."
~ Irish Insider, Rochester, NY

Seamus has an endless supply of rib-tickling jokes, stories and one liners which can leave an audience breathless from laughing so hard. Many a crowd has gone home from one of his shows giggling to one another, "Do you remember the one about...?" (Ask him to do the routine about Moms And Kids, the Nuns, or Murphy and the Snails.).

"When he sang "The Town I Love So Well", he owned everybody in the room."
~ Tony Hynes, Fir Dóiteán

But the Irish have their serious side too, and when Seamus performs one of the more somber ballads such as Tommy Sands' "There Were Roses" or Pete St. John's "Dublin In The Rare Old Times" you can hear a pin drop as the words sink in. That moment of silence before the applause can raise goosebumps. Seamus' greatest influences have been the Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem, the Dubliners' Luke Kelly, and the Irish Rovers, so it is no surprise to find many songs that they made famous, such as "The Wild Colonial Boy", "The Wild Rover," or "The Black Velvet Band" in his performance. So come and enjoy the music and mirth of one of Ireland's most popular exports - Seamus Kennedy!

Let the music take you home
I got what I expected, great music and story telling! I listen to this and other Seamus CD's in the car while driving, helps to start my day and rids my mind of work on the way home. My dad was born in Ireland the 2 songs related to leaving Ireland get me thinking about what it must have been like for him and my grandparents. Wish I developed an interest in my ancestery before they all passed away, so many questions I have for them. I atetnd the Irish Music festival in Muskegon each year to listen to him! Keep coming to Muskegon Seamus, even though you thought you were in Siberia Friday night!

Laughed so hard I spilled my beer.....
My kids sang "Old Macdonald had a deformed farm....." for days. This CD makes you want to run down to your local pub for a pint and a good old fashioned sing a long. We loved the ballads and laughed at all the jokes.....

Bob Nichols

Listening makes one feel like being in Ireland
Heard live performance in Savannah at the Irish Fest and also again that night at Kevin Barry's Irish Pub. Between both, it included all the songs on the CD. Had to have my own copy, listen to it often and appreciate the serious music as well as the comedy. My personal thanks to Seamus Kennedy for being such a wonderful performer.

Sharon McMurrough

Saw performance in Savannah - had to buy cd
We saw your performance at Kevin Barry's in Savannah
and laughed so hard we couldn't breathe. The cd is as funny
as that and the music is great. Thanks.

Rory

Outstanding! Makes me cry & laugh.
The selections on this CD are terrific. They bring back memories and good feelings. This is a replacement for the one my son borrowed and kept. (He may DJ techno music, but
his heritage still calls him, and the music does "take him home.")

Peggy Eastburn

Let the Music Take You Home
Great CD. My personal favorite on this CD is "The Shearin's No' For You." I love the way Seamus pronounces the words in the song. And listening to him sing "Old McDonald's Deformed Farm" made me laugh. I've seen him do it in person several times and listening to it I could just picture him on stage singing that crazy song.

The Best Mix of Traditional Irish Music and Humor
I loved this CD! Not usually a big fan of "live" tracks, but this one is great and the laughter in the background just adds to the fun. Seamus has a wonderful voice that is perfect doing traditional ballads as well as his satirical numbers - and his jokes and the way he tells them makes it impossible to not burst out laughing. The "Old MacDonald" song is one of my personal favorites from the CD, but the whole thing is just awesome. I listen to it over and over and it never gets old.

tom.m

Anitra

Not PC but WOW
What a great CD. We are pacing ourselves listening because some of the songs are so funny you could throw your back out laughing. 5 thumbs up.

Tina

Excellent CD
This is the first Seamus Kenedy CD I ever heard. He has a wonderful voice that is a pleasure to listen to. The songs are a great deal of fun and the jokes mixed in between the songs were a nice bonus. You really should give this CD a try.
