Celtic Woman vocalists Lisa Kelly, Chloe Agnew, Lynn Hilary and Alex Sharpe, with violinist Mairead Nesbitt, perform at Ireland's historic
Now, we stayed in a $200/night hotel. We can't afford the Casino Hotel... if you have to ask the price - well, you don't belong! We aren't high rollers, they comp the rooms for them. We saw a broad range of people in our walkabout of the Casino. Just an amazing place. There were people with big bucks, and lowly folks like us.
The performance was a quality performance. No doubt. The fiddler is a woman of skill, strength, stamina and endurance. You know the kind. She fiddles, dances, and moves about the stage with the skill of a gazelle, all the while fiddling.
The vocalists were superb. A definitely angelic sound.
But wouldn't you think, during a two hour show, there would be more than 2 songs that were...just say, Celtic. "Songs from the Heart" is the name of the tour. And they were, no doubt songs the musicians adore, but jumpin' jeezlies, they were mushy Hollywood songs that were backed up by a light show that would have done well on Canada Day in the capital. I'm just sayin' that we paid to see them in the spotlight, not to see ourselves faced with spotlights in our faces.
It took us 30 min. to get out of the parking lot. Does this make sense? We should have gone home at that rate! From Bala it is a 45 minute drive. I suppose we are old farts now.
It was the beginning to our big trip to S.E. Ontario to house hunt, and it was nice to go out and relax before our 12-day marathon.
Home safely from S.E. Ontario, laundry is done, house is sold and a new one bought.
