Fall Tour 09

Hi All
So as per usual, i'll start with apologising for not writing sooner!!!  It's funny how the shorter tours end up being the busiest and feeling like the longest!.  I hope this post finds you all well.  Well this have been a whirlwind tour.  We started out in Waukeegan and of course being the fall i've packed my winter wollies and have yet to hit cold weather.  It has been incredible.  I don't think i've worn my coat once!.  We were in some cities that I have never been to before like Paducah, Sioux Falls, Prior Lake, Merrillville, Lubbock and Appleton.  These were smaller cities but you wouldn't know it by the audiences.  We've been so lucky to have such wonderful audiences in all our venues.  The crowds seem to be getting larger and louder!.  Plenty of singing and dancing.  It's also getting to the stage that nearly every night there are people in the audience that we recognise.  Your dedication is incredible and very much appreciated.  
We got meet some fans that have written to us that we have never met before and of course we got to meet the good ole regulars that turn up at many concerts.  With the economy the way it is, it never ceases to amaze me how many of you still come to as many shows as you can.  But please know that we just love the fact that you are there, you don't need to bring gifts.  They are always so thoughtful and appreciated but times are tough these days and we really don't expect it. But thank you for all the gifts that we have received!.
I think the highlight of this tour was probably the showing of the special on CPTV in Connecticut.  We were so excited to see it finally on some of your screens.  We're incredibly proud of this production and hope that all of you will get a chance to see it before you get the DVD.
So here will are in the final week of the tour.  It's been a great few weeks.  We finish on Sunday and have a few days off before we have promo with PBS for a week.  We're all heading off in different directions for the PBS interviews so keep an eye on the celtic woman website for listings and any other appearances that we may be making!.
I'd like to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.  I'm very excited to be in the USA for thanksgiving.  It's a very special time.
Wishing you all health and happiness
I look forward to seeing you all soon
Lots of love
