Hello Gang,

This is a portion of an announcement I found on Deirdre's forum, have a read:


We would like to take this opportunity to announce Deirdre's new association with the group Celtic Thunder!  She has successfully completed her first taping with PBS on October 1st & 2nd.  It was taped at the International Center in Mississauga Ontario in a packed audience of 2000 members each night!  The show was produced by Sharon Browne with composer and musical director Phil Coulter.  Deirdre has joined forces with vocalists Damion Mc Ginty, Keith Harkin, Paul Byrom, Ryan Kelly, George Donaldson, and Neil Byrne.


I wish Deirdre well with her new accomplishments.


Tom

Yep, this is the big event I hinted at a couple of months ago.  I guess the cat's out of the proverbial bag now, huh?   Cheesy

This is a HUGE career move for our pal Deirdre, and I hope it brings her all the success and happiness she so richly deserves.

Do you know if this is this a one-time deal for PBS, or is it a multi-show thing?  LOTD is completed (I think), and Celtic Thunder is on tour; so can we look for Deirdre to be coming to a venue near us?

Deirdre is touring with the group Ragus at the moment. They are going to perform in Holland and then in Japan. The DVD that Deirdre taped w/ Celtic Thunder probably won't be released until spring. We won't be able to see it live until next fall as CT is still doing their Take Me Home show. Hope this helps.

Thanks, Dianne.  I guess if I had read the other thread recently, I would have known that!  (Oh well, can't help being greedy sometimes!)

What will she be? Lead vocalist?
This is a good question. What extent does she perform with the group?

I would suspect that she is more a guest artist, performing on 2 or maybe 3 songs. Sort of like Zara and the pretty young lady fiddler that danced (no offence, she has a lot of talent, but a certain other lady has the monopoly on the dancin' fiddlin' schtick!)  Deirdre would be a great female presence to compliment the 5 male principles. Also, any CW fans who may have not warmed up to CT will now take more notice. Looks like I must now plan to attend CT concerts.

If Deirdre has a greater role, say, actually more like joining as a principle, thats a big time change in the group's whole strategy and image. Thats a VERY interesting change, and it would be great for Deirdre and CT!
