Rare Blarney Fest Recordings Unearthed

   Posted by: Jay Lee   in General

Back in 1995 and 1996 Jay Lee organized two Celtic music events at the now defunct Rockefeller’s Nightclub.

The first event was called “Blarney Fest” and featured The Flying Fish Sailors, Ceili’s Muse and the first major public performance by the legendary band, Clandestine. The master of ceremonies was Jim McKenzie. The concert was completely sold out and by any measure, a huge success for all parties invloved.

The second event was called “Son of Blarney Fest” and featured the same bands and also included Gordian Knot and a solo performance by Mary Maddux. This event also sold out and was a huge success.

Both concerts were recorded and a limited run of CD’s and cassettes were sold and they were never reprinted. But now, thanks to the digital age, these recordings are available once more via web download ABSOLUTELY FREE!!

Hey guys! We LOVE your music! We are disappointed that we haven’t been able to find where you may be playing lately. It also appears that you won’t be playing at the Ren Fest this year. (The Ren Fest just isn’t the same without you!) Do you have a schedule of appearances in the Houston-Austin area for 2007/2008? We really want to experience your special brand of energy and music!

We wish you all the best!

I bought this cassette way back in ’95 at the Texas Renfest and played it so many times, it was starting to warp. I lost it during a move and have never been able to find another copy.
You have NO idea how thrilled I am to be able to download this now! Thank you so much for making it available!
You guys are so awesome, I always make a point to see ya’ll when I go to the TX Renfest.

Like Ron & Ronie, I would like to know if you have any scheduled appearances in the Austin/Houston area.

Thank you,
