Irish Tenors and Celtic Ladies
Today was our last venture out. Starting tomorrow it will be maintenance and only maintenance before we hit the road next Wednesday.
Here we go. First stop was the UPS store in order to return an item to Amazon. We checked and double checked and we knew we had ordered the right item. Unfortunately, they sent the wrong one. Back it went for we had no use for what they sent.
Time for a quick lunch. Well, how about that right across the street was one of our favorite fast food restaurants.
We ordered our food, went to our booth and that’s when we discovered this lovely group of balloon artists
that went by the name of
They are a Christian group of three that makes and shares balloon sculptures at Senior centers, Assisted Nursing facilities, schools, and so many other places. They explained that every Thursday they come together for a practice session.
Take a look.
And this little green turtle who is now proudly sitting on my dresser.
Lunch over it was time to get ourselves to the afternoon performance of
The billing for the show indicated that this talented group of Ireland’s finest singers would be performing a wide variety of music. It would include the popular music of the 20th century including opera, swing, pop, and of course a large number of famous Irish classics. The show did not disappoint.
Here they are performing their opening number. It’s such a shame that you can’t hear them as well as see them.
Let me share with you some more pictures from the show. The Celtic Ladies
Oh could they dance.
The Irish Tenors
They could sing and they could act. This is the leader of the group singing and performing MacNamara’s Band.
There’s more. They did a tribute to the Beetles.
Now we’re going to Murphy’s Irish Bar. The music, the energy, the dancing was absolutely fantastic!
Then they went down into the audience and came back with Sallie who was sitting in the front row. With her back on stage the fun began.
The ladies doing Mr. Sandman
How about some river dance.
The ladies singing Isle of Hope Isle of Tears. It tells the story of the first person to enter America through Ellis Island – a young Irish girl named Annie Moore and talks about leaving everything behind and starting over in a new place. It compares Ireland – the isle of tears – and the Isle of Manhattan – isle of hope.
Their final number Bridge Over Troubled Waters.
That is just a small taste of this delightful and wonderful show. I took close to 500 pictures but I don’t think anyone has the patience to sit through all of them! This is a show I would recommend to anyone who is visiting Branson.
Our day on The Road of Retirement has come to a close. It’s been a delightful day, a day we will remember for a long, long time. Oh yes ,there are so many other shows we could go to, but to do so we would have to go back to work in order to afford them. Another year, another month, another day and we’ll be back for more.
Thanks again for joining us today. We always appreciate your company and your comments. Catch you tomorrow.
These are the voyages of Graybeard and it’s two human soul mates. Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before
See you on down the road!
