A Bit of Ireland Comes to Red Bank

first_imgBy Mary Ann BourbeauRED BANK – Celtic Thunder is returning to North America for a 75-city tour, and the first stop is at the Count Basie Theatre on Aug. 19.“The first night is always very special,” said Ryan Kelly, who has been a member of the five-member Irish group since it was formed in Dublin in 2007. “Everything will be fresh. We’re happy to be kicking off our tour at the Count Basie Theatre.”Celtic Thunder celebrates the heritage of Irish and Celtic music. The members are known not only for their vocal harmonies and dramatic solos but their eclectic repertoire, which ranges from traditional Irish and folk music to adult contemporary, rock and classical numbers. There will be a mix of lively songs, including “Galway Girl” and “Raggle Taggle Gypsy,” and soft ballads such as “Danny Boy” and “Noreen.”The show also features dramatic, state-of-the-art lighting effects on a stage set resembling an ancient stone pathway, making it a theatrical event as well.“People love it because it’s a combination of things,” said Kelly. “We see three generations from the same family in our audience, and they all take away something different from the show. We have great pride that our music brings people together like that.”The shows also have a little comedic action, such as when the members perform the traditional Irish drinking songs.“We’re just a group of lads working together and we’re good friends as well,” he said. “The comedy adds entertainment for us and for the crowd. People want to sing along and have fun. It wouldn’t be an Irish show without a few Irish drinking songs.”Shortly after Celtic Thunder was formed, the group gained recognition from a performance broadcast on PBS, and they have been touring through North America, Australia and South Africa ever since. They have sold more than 2 million albums and topped the Billboard charts for world album.“Our fan base has been amazing since Day One,” said Kelly. “Irish and Celtic music is all about storytelling. We take people away from their lives for a couple of hours.”Kelly had always loved music but after graduating college, felt he needed a “real job.” In 2007, he was working as an accountant when he saw an article about auditions for Celtic Thunder.“I never really tried to do music full-time, but I thought I would give it a go and see what happens,” he said. “I never believed I had a chance. But lo and behold, here I am. We’re still going strong and about to embark on one of our biggest tours.”Kelly is also looking forward to his free time when he’s back in the United States. He is a big fan of American sports, and is hoping to catch a football or basketball game while he is here, in addition to seeing sights he has never seen before.“I love to travel and explore new places,” he said. “I’ve probably seen more of America than a lot of Americans.”Celtic Thunder will release its latest album, “Legacy, Volume Two,” on Aug. 12. It contains many of the best-loved songs from their tours, including “Streets of New York,” “Seven Drunken Nights,” “Isle of Innisfree” and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”“Being on stage tops everything,” said Kelly. “Every night is different, and it’s always something very special. I know how lucky I am to have this job and do something I really love.”last_img read more

India plotting for Gayle in World T20 semi-final

first_imgMUMBAI, India (CMC):India plan to specifically target explosive opener Chris Gayle in today’s semi-final of the Twenty20 World Cup, team director Ravi Shastri said yesterday.”Bring it on. All our bowlers will target him,” Shastri warned.”I have said this at the beginning. They are probably one of the most dangerous sides in this format,” Shastri said.The left-handed Gayle heads a list of big-hitters in the West Indies side, with the likes of Marlon Samuels, Andre Russell, captain Darren Sammy and Dwayne Bravo all capable of match-winning innings.”They have got explosive players, match-winners. We know what we are up against and we are up and ready as well. This is not a knockout game for us. The knockout was the last game. That was the quarter-final. This is the semi-final.”I still believe we have played only 70 per cent to our abilities in this tournament. There are still areas where we can improve. Let’s hope it happens tomorrow,” said Shastri.”In a semi-final you got to get your ‘A’ game in. You can’t depend on one or two players, you need six, seven players to step up to the plate. It has not happened so far in this tournament. Let’s hope it happens.”last_img read more

Guyana to seek Denmark’s assistance for local energy development – Granger

first_imgWith Guyana embarking on developing its energy sector, the country is looking to tap into the experience ofPresident David Granger and the Kingdom of Denmark’s Ambassador to Guyana Kim Hojlund Christensen shortly after the accreditation ceremony on Wednesdaythe Kingdom of Denmark as it accredits a new non-resident Ambassador.Denmark’s Ambassador to Guyana, Kim Hojlund Christensen, handed over his Letters of Credence to President David Granger on Wednesday at the Ministry of the Presidency.Upon accepting the accreditation documents, the Head of State noted that with the appointment of Ambassador Christensen, the existing relations between Guyana and Denmark will be further strengthened.On this note, he pointed out that Guyana is particularly looking forward to working closely with Denmark to advance cooperation for the development of the renewable energy sector in order to build a green and sustainable society.“Denmark is an international bellwether in development of sustainable energy… Guyana, like Denmark, is a small low lying coastal state; in fact, we are one of the smallest states on the continent of South America. So we are keen to learn from Denmark’s experience with community energy models which can guide our own path towards implementation of our national green agenda,” he stated.The President went on to say that relation between Guyana and Denmark over the years has been characterised by principles of mutual respect, mutual non-interference in each other’s internal affairs and cooperation for mutual benefit. He specifically recalled the agreement signed in 2004, cancelling Guyana’s commercial debt to Denmark.Moreover, Granger noted that Guyana looks forward to continued cooperation with Denmark in addressing common global challenges. “Guyana is committed to continuing to be active in global issues such as mitigation, adverse effects of climate change with the aim of finalising sustainable solutions,” he remarked.On this note, the Guyanese Head of State ratified the May 2016 Paris Agreement as well as committed to realising, through international co-operation and national developmental initiatives, the ambitious objectives that were set as part of the United Nations 20-30 Agenda for Sustainable Development.Meanwhile, in brief remarks, Ambassador Christensen, who is based in Brazil, expressed his commitment to promoting cooperation and developing the good relations between Guyana and Denmark.“The relationship between Denmark and Guyana is both longstanding and marked by mutual respect and friendship,” he stated.The Diplomat noted that Denmark and Guyana are committed to showing that the world can come together on important decisions, as was demonstrated at induction of the new Sustainable Development Goals in New York last September and by the Climate Agreement in Paris in December.Furthermore, Christensen pointed out that efforts to combat climate change and its impacts is of particular importance for low lying coastal countries, such as Guyana and Denmark.“Our countries geo-interest in ensuring strong and effective multilateral organisations is the framework for dealing with challenges of globalisation,” he stated.The Ambassador went on to outline that with Denmark having strong historic ties with North European countries and its membership within the United Nations (UN) and European Union (EU), it creates a background of common policies and democracies between itself and Guyana.Diplomatic relations between Guyana and the Kingdom of Denmark dates back to November 16, 1979.

Guiao hails Ravena-Alas backcourt as NLEX’s future

first_imgLATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “Even when he wasn’t born yet, his father was my player,” said Guiao. “We’re very close to Bong and Mozzy, but it’s not really that closeness that made us decide to pick him. What he has earned for himself through the years, he has proven that he is a winner, and he has proven that he’s an intelligent player who can play in any system.”With Ravena in tow, Guiao likes what he has as he sees Ravena forming a deadly backcourt duo with Kevin Alas.“Kiefer’s style is good for our system. Now, we have a K-and-K tandem, Kevin and Kiefer in our backcourt and they’ll be the future of this team,” he said as he expects his rookie to bring in instant impact with the Road Warriors.“Kiefer is coming to the league that he doesn’t need a lot of the learning experience that the other guards have to go through. He doesn’t need that long of an adjustment period. But I’d like to see him improve his outside shooting and his consistency, maybe being able to defend bigger guards also. He doesn’t need to improve much.”ADVERTISEMENT Kiefer Ravena.
