The Inishfree Irish Music Tour for May, 2016 is full with the exception of space for one single woman who wouldn’t mind sharing a room.  This trip will be a bit further north than last year.  We’ll go to counties Mayo, Galway and Clare, and like last year we’ll visit all sorts of wonderful places on the day trips (castles, seaside villages, museums…) and every single night we’ll hear traditional Irish music.  Sometimes it will be a solo artist and other times it may be a scorching hot group, but it will all be amazing.  Some of our stops will include a visit to the cottage where ‘The Quiet Man’ was filmed (with John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara) and an evening at Matt Malloy’s Pub in Westport.  (That’s Matt Malloy of the Chieftans.)

Rich Warren of WFMT Chicago has included Kitty on his list of the ’50 most significant songwriters in the last 50 years.’

I’m excited to be finally launching my first children’s book, ‘Henny and Benny Bunyan and the Maple Syrup Adventure’, officially on the […]
