Singer's Request

Singer's Request

Shay has released an album together with Celia Ramsay called "Singer's Request", which can be ordered from CD Baby. The album proudly includes instrumental support from John Doyle, Liz Carroll, Michael Black, Patrice Haan, Charlie Hancock, Eamonn Flynn, David Morris, David Brewer and Rebecca Lomnicky and vocal harmonies on some songs from Shay's family: niece Róisín, sisters Mary and Frances, and brothers Michael and Martin.

Shay Black is the eldest brother of Ireland's well-loved Black Family. Shay is revered in the San Francisco Bay Area as a song-catcher and teaches classes in song repertory when he and his brother, Michael, aren't following their busy performance schedule as The Black Brothers. He has appeared on numerous recordings, including In Harmony’s Way, and hosts the Sunday night Irish seísun at the Starry Plow in Berkeley. Celia and Shay have been singing together at music camps and song circles for many years.

On January 15, 2015 at 8:00pm, Celia and Shay will perform music from their new duo album, Singer's Request at the Freight & Salvage coffeehouse in Berkeley. The will be joined on stage by Charlie Hancock, Patrice Haan, and Shay's brother, Michael Black.
