Caladh Nua cd launch in Dungaravan town hall

Caladh Nua CD Launch  
Saturday December 13th 
A great crowd turned up last Saturday night to the Town Hall Theatre for the launch of Caladh Nua's new CD.  What a treat the concert was, the best of entertainment all free for the loyal audience with many of our members among the crowd of well known local musicians. Our branch Chairman Micheál Marrinan was on hand to open the proceedings and launch the CD. His proud references to Derek Morrissey and Caoimhín Ó Fearghaíl who began their musical education in  Cúil na Sméar and Paddy Tutty' s grandfather Tommy Norris, tied in well with his longtime friendship with banjoist Eoin Ó Meachair and a comprehensive knowledge of the many players and composers mentioned in the excellent sleeve notes.  Spokesman for the band Derek thanked Micheál for taking on the job at very short notice and used Micheál's remarks throughout the evening in introducing many sets.  This is a band of individual stars and talent with singer Lisa Butler leaving a lasting impression.  Her distinct diction and sweetness of tone with or without accompaniment, gives her a special standing in the genre which more than anything is the telling of a story in song.  Like the concert the CD itself is a gem, an ideal Christmas present.
