“Peace is not the product of a victory or a command. It has no finishing line, no final deadline, no fixed definition of achievement. Peace is a never-ending process, the work of many decisions.” — Oscar Hammerstein II

Happy to announce that “Peace Date” has earned a 5th place title in the Songs for Peace Songwriting Competition. Co-writers Nur Felix and Nancy Beaudette were awarded a $500 prize for the honour. Thank you to the Judges for selecting our song among all the impressive entries.

About the Competition:

Songs For Peace© is quite simply an international songwriting contest. It begins online when people submit their original peace songs, and progresses as others vote on the songs, and finally, a panel of judges reviews the highest rated songs and selected wildcard choices.

When enough people focus on peace instead of war, on harmony instead of discord, love instead of hate, a sea of change for peace can take place that will sweep the world. Just as mob violence is created by a critical mass of angry people with angry thoughts, so peace can be created by a critical mass of people focusing on peaceful thoughts.

Music is a powerful medium that has been used to foster patriotism, prepare for battle, sell products, promote religion and to inspire love. Why not use the universal language of music to permeate our culture with aspirations for peace and brotherhood?

From the first few bars at the very first rehearsal, The Kelly Girls knew a recording project would be in their future. 2017 is the year they made it happen. After months of arranging, recording, and mixing, the CD is complete!

Its unofficial release happened this past Friday night during their Celtic Christmas Show at the Bull Run Restaurant to an enthusiastic and celebratory audience. The reviews are just starting to come in, and the word on the street is beyond our wildest expectations!

Available for sale at www.thekellygirls.com
“Wow! Wow! Wow! Made me cry, gave me chills, and had me dancing around the kitchen while I made cookies. And that’s before it was even over! Highly recommended.” – P. Kenneally



The album has thirteen songs, seven of which are Kelly Girl originals! “Molly Kool”, written by Nancy Beaudette, honours the first North American woman to receive her Master Mariner papers back in 1939. “Last Rose of Summer” was penned by Christine Hatch and is a touching ballad about a mother’s legacy. “Barney’s Shenanigans” and “Barney Get Home” are jigs inspired by the antics of Aisling Keating’s cat! Melinda Kerwin’s beautiful melody “Another Goodnight” along with Nancy’s lyric, lament the heartache of young lovers going their separate ways. The title track, “May You Always”, performed by Chris and written by Nancy, invokes blessings and good wishes for a happy life.

Every song on the CD was thoughtfully arranged and produced with our audience in mind. We sincerely hope you enjoy the collection of songs we present on “May You Always”.

“Company of Stones” was inspired by Nancy’s familial roots, both French and Irish. “My ancestors have given me such a great gift and I feel honoured to carry on their legacy. I recently had my DNA tested and it’s pretty much spot on with my assumption that I’m a happy mix of UK/Ireland and Western Europe – presumably France. Their struggles and successes are part of me for better or for worse.” Company of Stones was recognized in the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Song Contest along with other songs from her collection “South Branch Road”. Buy the CD on Nancy’s website or download on iTunes today. http://nancybeaudette.com/
