Have you ever enjoyed an event as much as the RavensFire CD Release Party? I hope that everyone who spent time with us Saturday evening had as much fun as we did. The weather cleared up just after the music started, so some folks could sit on the patio to soak up both music and sun.

Enjoying the evening at Studio 5

Once again Bonita and Stacy did a fantastic job hosting, keeping everyone supplied with food and drink. They worked hard to satisfy the overflow crowd. About a dozen children listened in, including the two little girls who danced a couple of reels for everyone.

Dozens of people are now enjoying the music of RavensFire at home and in their cars because they bought a copy of the new CD. Songs on the CD are a mix of traditional Irish tunes and original songs written by Melissa Schmidt.

If you can’t wait to hear music by RavensFire, head over to our YouTube page to hear Roll and Go, one of Melissa’s original songs. Other songs on the CD include Whiskey in the Jar, The Banshee/ Cooley’s, The Sheep Went Over the Mountain/Run Away, The Riddle Song, Hurrah for the Heroes, Hush Little Baby/Denis Murphy’s, The Kesh/ Munster Buttermilk, Willow Wood and The Boatman’s Dance.
