Meet Seamus Kennedy:[seamus kennedy] Originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, Seamus been entertaining audiences all over the United States for the past 32 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. 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. 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.) 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. A multiple WAMMIE award-winner (the prestigious Washington Area Music Association Awards) for "Best Irish Male Vocalist," Seamus appreciates the fact that the recognition comes from his fellow performers and musicians, although he doesn't place much importance in awards and ceremonies. Meet Gerry Mc Crudden Gerry McCrudden was born in Belfast, N. Ireland. He immigrated to North America in 1975. He has entertained crowds in Ireland, Europe and in the United States for many years on stage, television and radio. He has shared the stage with some of the legends of of Irish Music including Tommy Makem, Paddy Reilly, Tom Sweeney & the Clancy Brothers to name but a few. Gerry brings a party atmosphere wherever he is with his irish songs and stories. Gerry resided in Upstate New York for many years where he was also the host of Echoes of Erin, an Irish Radio Program broadcast over Upstate New York and Ontario, Canada. Gerry along with his good friend Aby Marks (Dublin) produced and hosted this very popular radio program for over 16 years. and Now NC is proud to call him a resident. Gerry and Seamus have been friends for to many years to count. That friendship add's to laughs and banter on stage as the two unite for a couple of grand ole Irish songs together, Joining Gerry on stage will be his only daughter Clare who is fying in to help him celebrate Christmas in rare Irish form This is gonna be a grand night of Irish music, Great food & the best of Craic. see ya there Slainte Annie Nice Tir na nOg Pop Up Pub events host. 919 798-9881 Irish Christmas - $8.00
