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!

I can't believe it
My first exposure to Seamus Kennedy was at a pub called "Ireland's Own" in the Old Town section of Alexandria, VA. I was blown away, sober and thoroughly enjoyed the performance. I bought this album on cassette tape that night and over the years wore it out. I am excited to see that I can purchase this album in CD format now and look forward to receiving this album as well as the album By Popular Demand. I suspect that sooner or later I will probably own all of his offerings. Just seeing the song titles helps to recall various memories.

I can't believe I found this again.
A friend of mine gave me a copy of this on tape years ago. I then heard Seamus Kennedy once at VA beach. I lost my tape and tought I would never hear it again. I can't belive I found this CD again after all these years!!! It's the most entertaining thing I have ever heard. Well worth a listen. I'm giving copies away at my St. Patrick's Day party.

I have been looking for this outstanding CD everywhere
I loved it! I loved the songs. A quality addition to my CD library

What memories come back!!
Many years ago I had the chance to be part of Seamus' Live Audience for this Album and for several subsequent albums. Although I have since left the Washington area the CD's bring back many wonderful memories of good friends, great food, and trememndous laughter all brought about by Seamus Kennedy. His style is all its own ... unique as can be!!

G R Brammer

Fantastic CD and outstanding customer service.
The super staff at CD Baby sent a confirmation of shipment emal that was so great that I had to share it with my friends. Seamus is one of my favorites and I was super satisfied with the quality of the sound on the CD.

I've been looking for this CD forever. A friend saw your performance in either Charleston or Savannah and gave me a tape. I played it until my son grew up left home, took it with him and promptly lost it. I am so glad to find it and can't wait to get it and the other 3 I ordered.These songs make me laugh cry and just plain joyful.

This cd was suggested to me by a co-worker. I loved everything but the chihuahua ones. Especially, the Scotsman one and the bagpipes. Will probably purchase another, soon.

I've been hunting for this CD for ten years.
Ever since I purchased this as a tape from Seamus in Monterey California in 1992 I've loved it. I learned the whole tape forward and back. But about four years ago I made the decision quit listening to my tape until I could make a CD out of it. Then on a lark I looked Seamus up on-line and found this!!!

The music found on this CD is great, the old folk songs remind me of my youth living in Britain. His parodies are hysterical, and the drinking songs are toe-taping. Enjoy the music.

Thanks!
The ambiant sound is not so great, but it was recorded some time ago in a the live awesome setting of Ireland's Own. It brought back great memories to me as I used to loved to spend Saturday nights there when I lived in the area. Thanks!
