Cathy, Seamus, several of her band members and meself had one of the great nights a few years back. It was after the Michigan Irish Music Festival on the shore of Lake Michigan in Muskegon. We all decided to go for Chinese, accompanied by copious amounts of liquor, and acting up. We cleared the place in record time and had a ball. The craic was 90.

Wonderful lady, with a voice that fits right in God's own choir.

Mick

Please give Cathie my regards Ron.

But Ron, do that in person so you can see the smile that creeps over her at the mention of Seamus' name. They are great friends, and when it comes to teasing, she gives as good as she gets. **chuckle**

Don't miss this concert, folks. Cathie has that rare ability to create magical moments in virtually every setting. And besides, she is the product of the Irish American community around Detroit, MI.

All the best,

Mick

Cathie Ryan always puts on a great show. Those of us who are too far away to attend are looking forward to at least reading a review of her performance.

I will be sure to send her your regards!    We are having some snow in the area, but the concert is still on!   Just getting ready to leave for the sound check.   I will report back later!

It was a superb concert!   The snow did keep us from having a sold out house, but we had a decent turnout on a rather inclement night!   It was warm and cozy in the theater, and Cathie treated the audience with an outstanding performance of her songs.   I think people overlook how good she is as a songwriter because her vocals are so pure and captivating.   She has written powerful songs over the years, and with her new backup group she delivered them in an inspired performance.   It was a real treat, and worth traveling the snowy streets of New Jersey to catch!
