I hope this finds you well. We’re now in the autumn of the year and it’s almost Election time. Much has been said about this election cycle so there is little point in me adding my two cents worth. I’m scheduled to leave town in two days and must vote early, all of which leaves me in quite the quandary, nonetheless I’ll steel myself and off I will go tomorrow morning. I haven’t lost hope like many of my fellow citizen…still the horizon has looked much brighter, shall we say.

Our Ireland Tours were very successful this summer and we have packages together for two Tours in the summer of 2017. Information and full itineraries may be found on the Tours page here on our website. Reservation forms can be downloaded here also or we can email or surface mail all of the information to you or friends and family…please just let us know.

In 2017 Fr. Liam Collins offers a Celtic Spirituality Tour and our own Tour is Called Southern Charm. If my math is correct these will be our 39th and 40th Ireland Tours and we’re delighted to once again work with our Irish driver/guide and business partner Owen Mohan. Please look through the Tour information and contact us should you have any questions or concerns.

It seems that I’m performing more with Norwegian Cruise Line these days and I must admit I am enjoying it very much. I join the Norwegian Dawn in Boston this Friday, October 28th as she repositions to New Orleans for the winter. We’ll head south and stop at various islands in the Caribbean on the way. On January 2nd I will join the Norwegian Breakaway and once again sail towards the islands where I will transfer to the Norwegian Gem. They have me island hopping between these two ships until February 12th and then it’s back to Savannah to perform in Kevin Barry’s and at the Savannah Irish Festival.

In the interim Carroll Brown, Marci Shore and I will be on the road with our annual Celtic Christmas Tour. Details to be found shortly on the schedule page of our website.

On November 19th I will perform a concert in the Roasting Room in Bluffton, South Carolina. This concert will be more intimate and contain a lot more personalized material than my usual concerts. I hope people will find time to come join me for this one off event.

The Green Island Radio Shows continues to grow in popularity…even after 24 years. It continues to be a highlight of my career and I thank all involved.

I’m still working diligently on the reissue of my album Folksinger. It should be available at the end of the year or early in 2017.

That’s about it from my world…oh, except that I hope to study French in the next few months…will it take? Whonoze?

Thank you for your continued support and best of luck, best of health, may your God go with you and may your candidate win!!
