Líadan Newsletter July 2009
Hello and thank you for joining us at The Líadan Newsletter!
First of all, we are all very excited to have been recently nominated in two categories for Ireland’s Music Awards 2009:
‘Best Young Irish Traditional Act’ and ‘Best Newcomer’.
If you´d like to vote or see more about the awards, please go to   www.irelandsmusicawards.com/nominees.php
Closing date for voting is 15th July 2009.

It´s been a busy year to date for the Líadan Ladies, with April seeing the launch of our much awaited second album, Casadh na Taoide/Turning the Tide at Dolan´s Warehouse in Limerick on the 18th of April. We have been delighted with the response to date and have really enjoyed the launch concerts around the country. Thanks to all of you who came along and supported us for the gigs, we had a great time!
If you would like to have a listen to some tracks from our new album, go to www.myspace.com/liadanmusic. for a taste of our new music.
Casadh na Taoide/Turning the Tide is available for purchase at our website www.liadan.ie
We´ve had a great time touring abroad also over the past months in  France, Belgium and most recently at the Fort Collins Irish Festival in Denver, Colorado. Last Sunday saw a most enjoyable performance  in the grounds of Leinster House, Dublin for The Oireachtas Family Day. Well done to all our wonderful dancers who took to the floor/grass.
We’re really looking forward to performing as part of The Bunratty Folk and Variey Club at Bunratty Folk Park on Saturday 25th July. This new summer concert series features a great line up of acts performing in an intimate concert setting.
