Here's a news flash for you all: we're lame! At least when it comes to promotion, updating sites, etc. As many have noticed we haven't been here in a while. That's not because we haven't had anything to talk about. It's because... well, we're lame. Anyway. A couple things to mention: first, our song "Darker Than The Mine" off "Pile High The Pennywall" is on the Irish and Celtic Music Podcast's list of the top 20 Celtic Songs of 2015, alongside our pals Runa and the Elders. (Interesting note, "Bourbon and Shamrocks," out of Alabama, another band on the list the year, have a Youtube video of them performing BRB's "Stand With Me Boys," which topped this same list in 2009.) We're very proud to be on this list and grateful to the Podcast's creator Marc Gunn, for all he does to promote Irish music. This is the most downloaded Irish Podcast in the world and deservedly so.
In other news, the Stanley Theater will be once again presenting "An Irish Night At The Stanley," which was wildly successful last year. This year's show on April 8 will feature Central New York's three favorite Celtic bands, The Elders, Hair of the Dog and the Blarney Rebel Band and, for reasons someone else will have to explain to you, will be your only chance to see these three bands together at the same venue this year. Tickets are $18, $28, $38, and $48. Reserve your seats at The Stanley box office (M-F, 10am-3pm), by phone at 315-724-4000 or through the Stanley website.
