Róisín O in Concert
A grand time was had by all at Róisín O's house concert on the San Francisco Peninsula on Tuesday, August 13th, 2013.
Róisín , a member of the famous Black
Family of Ireland, and daughter of Mary Black, performed in her debut USA solo tour,
visiting from Ireland after recently performing for the President of
Róisín performed a wonderful mixture of songs, including Irish/Celtic, folk and some of her own songs.
Near the end of her performance she
got her uncles Michael and Shay Black to sing with her. One of the
songs they sang was "Colcannon" a favorite of the Black Family. Roisin
also sang one of my favorites, "Caledonia."
Before and after the concert people had a chance to chat with Róisín and an opportunity to purchase her recently released
CD "The Secret Life of Blue"
After the concert was over, many
people stayed for fun singing session which included Roisin, Michael
and Shay. As we went around the room singing songs. Roisin gave us a
wonderful rendition of "The Hills of South Armagh."
Niall McCormack gave us a nice version of "Maids When Your Young Never
Wed and Old Man" and that was followed by the amazing voice of Dee
McNamara who responded with "Don't Get Married" and a wonderful song
from her native County Clare. When it got down to the last 6 people we
finished up with "Parting Glass."
