Sheila will be accompanied by the group Lochside Celtic Duo, who were instrumental in recording and producing the CD at both of the CD release parties. “I feel that my involvement in these CD releases is a culmination of my love and affection for the greater Irish Community, and my own Celtic roots here in Western New York,” said Sheila Stratton-Peel. “It becomes obvious when sitting with her, that her dedication to the history of the Irish/Celtic people is accomplished through song. Her voice often reflects her high strong emotional traditional interpretations of classic folklore”, states Gerhardt Yaskow who interviewed Sheila for this release. “I can’t think of a better venue, than the Old First Ward of Buffalo and its historic Irish roots, to debut my life’s work,” said Sheila Stratton-Peel. There is a deep commitment to the Celtic community in both Erie and Niagara Counties whereas Sheila is involved with many festivals and organizations that promote the heritage of the Celtic people. During this release, Sheila has invited others regional performers and fans to hear her sing many of her solo hits and traditional renditions. The Wildes, Step-in-Time, Billy LaRauch, and Sloontynx, plan to accompany her at her ceremony. Regarding Sheila’s past artistic background, her local artist friend, Mary McAndrew from Clarence Center, with strengths in interpretive mythological art, has designed the CD’s cover jacket. Ms. McAndrew will be on hand for the celebration with some of her newest works. You can view her webpage at www.marymcandrew.com. Within the jacket one appreciates Sheila’s gratitude towards Tom Keefer, Norm Bock, fellow band members, and long time local performers and friends, including Gerhardt Yaskow, owner of historic McCarthy’s Irish Pub. “Having been born and raised near Keuka Lake, in Upstate New York, I have always considered myself to be a “lady of the lake”, with that being said, I am of Irish, Scottish, Welch, and Cornish heritage,” said Sheila Stratton-Peel. See her sites www.sheilamarkproductions.com and www.celticmoonproductions.com for dates and time of future performances. After 40 years of successful various life experiences in the music business, which began in Central New York’s Finger Lakes Region, later into Southern Ontario (Canada), and now, currently, in both Erie and Niagara Counties, Sheila has been awarded many accolades including: Best Female Voice in Folk for June 2005, an Adelphia Cable performance for the Niagara County Celtic Heritage Society Festival promotion in September 2006, extensive global reviews from www.Folkmagazin.de to local reviewers such as Kate Olena, applauding her current and past professional achievements in our folk music arena.
