...I don't know if she would ever make it over to my neck of the woods (Riverview/Moncton, NB to be exact).
Hayley travelled to Cape Breton just last October. Just a skip across the strait for you. She sang at one of the Celtic Colours Festival performances (with Natalie MacMaster).
Living in Atlantic Canada as you do, I'm sure you're familiar with many east coast musicians. I trust you have heard of The Cottars and of Aselin Debison. You'll find lots info of about them on the 'other music' board!
Ugh!! If I only knew then what I know now, I would have been there in a flash. Alas, it wasn't to be. One of these days...
Rather than recounting my story of meeting Hayley (unless of course, you have read this post before I edited it....shhhh ), I will say that I, similarly, became "officially" Hayley-wowed after buying her CD "Celtic Treasure" and also watching her perform several songs from the CW show on PBS.
Thank you for sharing, Chris. It is always interesting to learn how other fans became introduced to Hayley. Looking forward to many more posts, as you yourself seem to be a "Hayleywowed" individual.
Cheers, and all the Best, Eric
P.S. Keep your ear to the ground for any news of/about Hayley in your area.
When Hayley came down the ramp to sing Scarborough Fair (gorgeous by the way), I believe that was the moment that I became Hayleywowed/Westenwowed
That is a great way to become Haylewowed Chris!!
I agree that Hayley looks breathtakingly beautiful in the dresses she wears for the Celtic Woman shows and I always watch for her 'walk down' to Scarborough Fair - it is perfection, the way she crosses one foot in front of the other with such grace. Oh Boy!!
