Sail Off into the Sunset in Grand Celtic Fashion with Thomas O’Leary & Friends: August 22nd, Sunday (5:30 – 8:00 p.m.)
That’s right, another cruise! … But this one’s a little bit different. (See video) Come and experience the more intimate atmosphere aboard the Thomas E. Lannon as you sail around Gloucester harbour taking in the lovely sunset. This boat is a schooner, so you will be sailing with the group, rather than the crowd. And if you get lucky, they’ll even let you hoist a sail or two! But wait, I haven’t gotten to the best part yet. Well of course, the music.
Your entertainment hosts for the Celtic Music Sail will be Michael O’Leary & Friends. They will be presenting to the audience what the Celts would term a “seisiun”. This means a highly informal performance designed for audience participation. So, be prepared to sing-along and have a rollicking good time all around! O’Leary is a long time resident of the area and an accomplished vocalist, currently performing at weekly seisiuns, local festivals, and numerous additional events. He has trained with the best of Celtic singers including Frank Harte, Andy Irvine, and others. He was also awarded a scholarship by the Massachusetts Cultural Council to study with Bridget Fitzgerald who founded the internationally renown, highly successful, Irish-American ensemble Cherish the Ladies. His “friends” will be accompanying him on fiddle, pipes, guitar, whistle, concertina, and other traditional instruments. This looks to be a cruising experience which is definitely out of the ordinary and a lot of fun too! You can enjoy dinner before or after the cruise at the conveniently located Gloucester House Restaurant. Check out the menu here.
