Patsy Honouring Luke Kelly

Raglan Road promo CDJust a couple of days ago, a special promotional 2-song CD was sent out to media nationwide: 2004 will be the year of Patrick Kavanagh's 100th birthday and this upcoming January 30th marks the 20th anniversary of Luke Kelly. These two are forever tied together through the song Raglan Road which Patsy also has recorded. Pictured here is the front of the CD and below you find the liner notes:

Patsy commemorates the 100th birthday of Patrick Kavanagh by releasing his recording of Raglan Road.
He dedicates Dublin In My Tears to the late Luke Kelly, whose 20th anniversary on January 30th is fast approaching. Luke Kelly had made Raglan Road famous and was a dear friend to Patsy. Both songs taken from Patsy's new album Hearts On Fire (Rare Auld Times Records, PGW 001).

If you want to read and hear more about Raglan Road, please check our Songbook with tons of info (and even Patsy talking about it) and our Downloads with a music clip.
The best thing about it is that one of you will get that promo CD for free! What are you going to do for this? Simply sign our guestbook and leave a comment about Patsy, his music or his website. No need in mentioning this news here though. In due time, we will pick one of the entries and award it with the CD. As they say: Keep those letters and cards coming in!
