CLADDAGH BIRTHSTONE RINGS AND PENDANTS

“I give you my heart in friendship and crown it with my love”

The Claddagh ring / pendant is a traditional Irish jewellery piece, given in friendship or worn as a wedding ring. The design and customs associated with it originated in the Irish fishing village of Claddagh, located just outside the old walls of the city of Galway. The story goes that back in the 17th Century Richard Joyce, a Galway Fisherman, was captured by pirates and sold into slavery in Algiers. He was sold to a Moorish Goldsmith who trained him in his craft, and there Joyce created the Claddagh Ring for his love back in Ireland. In 1689 Joyce was released from captivity and returned to Ireland, whereupon he married his love. He set up a Goldsmith shop in Claddagh, and the earliest Claddagh rings bear his maker’s mark and initials. The ring’s distinctive design features two hands clasping a heart, and surmounted by a crown. The elements of this symbol are often said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown). If you wear the ring with the narrow part of the heart pointing towards your heart, it means that you are taken. Wearing the ring with the point of the heart facing out means that you are free.

BYRNE AND KELLY - 'ECHOES'

Celtic Thunder Principals and talented Singer-songwriters Neil Byrne and Ryan Kelly make up the Celtic folk acoustic duo Byrne and Kelly. Ryan and Neil have just released a collection of original songs for their new album Echoes in February 2016. Driven by solid vocal harmonies, the duo seamlessly combines genres like traditional Irish and Americana to create a fresh Celtic folk sound. Within the first week of its release Echoes received immediate chart success and hit the #1 spot on the iTunes World Music chart, #1 Amazon Traditional Folk and #1 Amazon Traditional British & Folk charts, Amazon Top 100 Album, Billboard Top 5 World Album and Google Play Top World Album.

Following the release of Echoes, Byrne and Kelly set out on a 14 city, 17 date sold out ‘Album Launch Tour’ in March and April. The duo had the rare opportunity to play through the entire album and delve deep into the explanation of the songwriting process and the stories behind each track.

During a remote weekend writing retreat in County Cavan, Ireland with fellow musicians Nicole Hudson and Peter Sheridan, the seed for the Echoes album was planted. Just over a year later, the result is a 10 track album featuring songs that highlight their rich, Irish culture and experiences traveling the world playing music.

TRACK LIST

01 - Belfast
02 - Step It Out Mary
03 - Come Away
04 - The Garden
05 - Land of a Thousand Dreams
06 - The Rag Man

Hello everyone,

Spring is in the air. I was back in Ireland for 2 weeks for meetings and for Easter and got to do some auditions for the first time in ages. Really enjoyed it. I love the anticipation of wondering who I will see and the excitement when you meet and hear someone you think has a special something as a performer.

I found a couple of lovely singers, one of whom I think is a really interesting prospect. I have some follow up to do but I think I’ll be including him in the fall tour.

Will keep you posted!
