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!

Good Will To Men Seamus Kennedy

Really Great Holiday CD
You'll love this CD if you love Irish Folk! It's a must have! I bought a second copy for a friend!

Celtic Turtle

I've loved Seamus for years because he personifies the best of the Irish: the tradition, the humor, and just the beautiful music of the Irish soul. His music is always unlike anything else, even if someone else has done the song.... they'll never be Seamus and then there are those songs that no one else could come up with EXCEPT Seamus.

Lady Rebecca

Wonderful. More proof of Mr. Kennedy's fantastic preformances.
Loved this sweet Christmas collection. Miss Fogerty's fruitcake is a joy. My only disappointment was that Mr. Kennedy didn't sing O Holy Night. I know he has the voice for this beautiful hymn. The mandolins used for the hymn were lovely but my family and I were looking forward to hearing him sing it.


awesome as always
Seamus Kennedy is the best entertainer!

Christmas music as it should be.
Goodwill to Men is Christmas music as it's meant to be - from the heart celebrating the season and the joy of sharing love and good times with family and friends. The inclusion of poetry and stories along with Irish versions of my favorites lifted my heart. Thank you, Seamus.

At Christmas, even Seamus gets sentimental
If you have spent enough time in the mall searching for the perfect Christmas gifts for your loved ones, then you too have been subliminally brainwashed by the repetition of Christmas music in the background. It's enough to make you want to finish that whole carton of Egg Nog on your own to drive Dominic the Donkey out of your head. Nevertheless, you can't help but be entertained when a brilliant artist like Seamus puts together a Christmas CD. A nice blend of traditional, Irish, and a humorous song (in true Seamus style) is the best description of GOODWILL TO MEN. It's enough to melt even the coldest of hearts on Christmas.
