‘The Brigadoons’ ‘Live @ Loon’ 2018 Music CD.

by Anura Guruge

My friend, Canadian music maestro Paddy Kelly of the famed “The Brigadoons” — my all time favorite Celtic group — sent me this CD in the mail today.

Wow. I was so excited and grateful.

I have, alas, only heard the “The Brigadoons” @ Loon — albeit 50 to 60 times over a 20-year period.

So ‘@ Loon’ is what I associate with “The Brigadoons”. I have heard them play multiple times at the “Governor’s Lodge“. I might have even been in the audience when this was recorded. Wow.

I just listened to a bit of it. Brilliant. Authentic sound. You can definitely get in the groove.

You will enjoy this.

I will forever think of this as THEIR ‘White CD’. The Beatles had a white album, this is their white CD — as meaningful.

Thank YOU, Paddy. You remain THE MAN. The MAESTRO.

You have already seen his Photoshop artistry and some of his writing. Now a poem-in-prose.

P.S., Dick added this in his e-mail with the poem: “Don’t worry, the subject of this poem is purely fictional, not about anyone I know personally.

The Paddy Kelly (Of ‘The Brigadoons’), Christmas CD (2016) — Blinking Brilliant!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


The CD that I ordered, from Paddy, arrived today, in the mail.

I knew it would be good, but Paddy Kelly (yet again) managed to exceed to all expectations.

It is not just good, it is BLINKING BRILLIANT.

It is really Master Class.

I have, consistently, referred to Paddy as a Maestro and this CD affirms my belief.

He has such a rich, powerful and melodious voice. I think it is a Baritone but I am not good on that stuff.

All I know is that this CD is extremely conducive to the ear.

Love it.

You really need to get it.


And a Video

Oh Come All Ye Faithful” is my all time favorite Christmas song.

I am, per my own admission, quite the connoisseur when it comes to “Oh Come All Ye Faithful“.

If it isn’t good, I can tell.

And, let me please assure you that Paddy’s rendition is World Class.

So, I tried, MY BEST, to try and share it with you. Some caveats. I don’t like shooting videos. I rarely shoot video and this is THE FIRST video I have shot with this camera. So, please excuse all the limitations. I know I don’t do Paddy justice and I probably have exploited his copyright (but I know he will be cool with that).

Listen, watch, ENJOY. It is MUCH BETTER in ‘person’. This video is poor. Sorry.

Paddy Kelly, as some of you will already know, is a key member of our favorite group “The Brigadoons“. That is how we got to know Paddy. He was the one very instrumental in getting Devanee to sing with the “The Brigadoons” at Loon, at the ‘Highland Games‘, last September. We are very grateful to Paddy for that and Devanee ‘whoops’ every time she hears me on the phone with Paddy.
