Happy Spring to you all! March was a downright whirlwind for the Selkies. We played the North Texas Irish Festival at Fair Park to some great audiences. It is always a pleasure to see familiar faces and make new friends around Dallas. Big thanks to all who came out!
The next weekend, we headed down to Cleburne to take part in a very special production, Cetlic Passion, with fellow regional favorite 5 Second Rule and the Maguire Academy of Irish Dance. You can see some videos from these performances at our YouTube Channel. It was a sincere pleasure to work with such a talented team of musicians for this show. Below is the clip of our latest song, performed in Cleburne last month, which will be featured on our upcoming album (date unknown), which tells the story of the much beloved Irish pirate and patriot, Grace O'Malley. Enjoy!
Oro Se Do Bheatha 'Bhaille
April will be exciting for us as well with dates at some of our favorite local pubs such as Trinity Hall and our debut at Churchill's British Pub in McKinney, along with a returning date at Square One Cafe. We're back in the studio and working on some new material so be on the lookout for a very special track we'll be sharing exclusively with our mailing list subscribers (that's you!).
Also, we've added a new festival for May - the Texas Scottish Festival and Highland Games in Arlington. This is our first year to play the festival and we are really looking forward to it - hope to see you out there!
