DC Metro area only!

Siobhan O'Brien, Direct from County Limerick.  

Performing for the first time in the DC Metro Area Irish Pubs, June/July 2017.  What a Talent!

Click this underlined link to hear Siobhan O'Brien's show-stopper song! 

Siobhan singing tribute to Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah".  Leonard Cohen would be so proud of Siobhan's cover of his song!  This song is already beating Siobhan to her gigs in the USA, with requests before anyone has heard her sing live!  Make sure to  stop into one of her upcoming shows in the DC metro area in June/July 2017.  No cover charge at any of these initial gigs!  This song has proven to be a "show-stopper" over this past month!   Clock is ticking until Siobhan will leave the DC metro area at the end of July.  I fully expect her vocal talents  will be noticed by the USA recording industry and/or festival circuit in her future endeavors, so don't miss this opportunity to hear this great artist from County Limerick, Ireland!  Siobhan has 2-CD's for sale with her this tour, so make sure to pick up one or both of them! For more information on Siobhan and more Youtube links, go to www.siobhanobrien.com

 See DC Metro area  pub listings below, or just click on www.IrishUSA.com/siobhan to see Siobhan's bookings for June/July 2017.

Enter the Haggis

Enter The Haggis have been leading the charge among Celtic folk rock bands for twenty years, delighting fans with their memorable live performances and musical skill. The Toronto based band has released eight acclaimed albums, the most recent debuting at number nine on the U.S. Billboard Heatseekers chart. Their original songs such as "One Last Drink" and "Gasoline" have become genre anthems and the band's new single, "Mrs. Elliott," is a triumphant return to form, showcasing Enter The Haggis' signature sound and instrumentation. Bagpipes blaze over a powerhouse hard rock rhythm section. "Mrs. Elliott" is the opening track on the band's 20th Anniversary retrospective double album 'Cheers And Echoes.' The Cheers and Echoes Tour kicks off in 2016 and will be making a stop in Sellersville for their Thanksgiving Eve party!
