Burning Bridget Cleary announce "Everything Is Alright"

There's lots of so exciting I think I wanna jig around the office news coming out of the Burning Bridget Cleary camp today.

Namely, they've finally laid the pipes for their highly anticipated new CD--Everything is Alright. And after 9 months of writing & recording it--it's safe to say it's their baby. The album, which is sure to be ripe with cheer, will be out just in time for the holidays. They also announced a fresh batch of upcoming holiday shows including their CD Release Party & Holiday Show Extravaganza on Dec 13 at the ol' Steel City Coffeehouse.

Check the comments to see their full-on statement and slate of upcoming shows for the full deal.

Dear Friends and Celtic Music Fans,

Well, the long-awaited day has finally arrived! Our new CD, “Everything is Alright”, has gone into production! Nine months in the making, our new release includes both the old and the new; time-tested traditional tunes, passed on to us by some of the greatest fiddlers in the world of Irish music, mingled with our own original compositions following Celtic and folk styles.

More sweet news! We have been blessed to have received endorsement quotes for the CD from three of the GIANTS in Irish music, Martin Hayes, Liz Carroll, and Tony DeMarco! We are truly honored to be recognized by these brilliant, world-renowned musicians and we’re very grateful for their generous words. This is incredibly thrilling stuff!
