My Cincinnati informer Cole Imperi has brought me this wonderful news and link to an audio. Riverdance has introduced me to the wonderful music of John Whelan and that name stuck with me ever since. Now Reel Roots Folk Music Alliance has brought to the fore these wonderful talents in Celtic music that one should not miss. thanks to the wonderful audio clip I was able to get an impression as to what fans would expect if they happen to attend one of the concerts. I give high five to people like Kristin Kirby for being so passionate about the music she loves to the point of putting this wonderful multimedia event! Here’s the press release:
