"Maid for Music!!!"

Traditional Irish music’s newest sensation, the Maids of Erin, entertained a sell-out crowd at the Crown Morn Hotel in Cricklewood, on Saturday night. Earlier in the day the Maids of Erin had joined with Donncha O’Dulaing of Irish radio fame in a sponsored walk from Kilburn to Cricklewood in aid of the Cricklewood homeless. They had received messages of support and appreciation from the Mayor of London Ken Livingstone and from Dermot Ahern, Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs.
The show was a packed hour and a half of traditional Irish music and song that held the audience enthralled. This was an audience of exiles and the music and song brought back memories of their younger days in Ireland. Some members of the audience expressed delight that the music and songs of traditional Ireland were being taken up with such passion and pride by another generation. The Maids made a lot of new fans on the night and, I’m told, they have been invited back to London to play at a Christmas concert in Harrow next month. (Irish Post, Oct 20 2007)
