The Carillion that Charlie St Cyr Paul is using was the same one Frank Dellapenna used whilst performing as cast in bronze.

Charlie St Cyr Paul is currently working on three tours first of which is the Cast in Bronze legacy tour which was created in honour of his mentor Frank Dellapenna of cast in bronze. This tour is a tribute to all of Frank Dellapenna’s hard work as Charlie takes on a fresh new interpretation.

The final tour is the Bells of Mystery tour which will include a whimsical display of Iconic movie themes such as Game of Thrones and Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, E.T and many more in a way which most people will have never experienced before and undoubtably create some unforgettable memories.

Mary McLaughlin Releases “I’m Looking for Sanctuary” Music Video

RootStrings Management is delighted to announce the release of a new original song from Irish singer-songwriter Mary McLaughlin. “I’m Looking for Sanctuary” is a stirring reflection on the plight of refugees everywhere.

Mary says: “‘I’m Looking for Sanctuary’ was recorded at home in Ireland during the Covid lockdown of Winter 2020-2021. The song began its life twenty years previously in 2001 on the occasion of my visiting Ellis Island in New York and empathising with the hopes and fears of my ancestors who had emigrated from Ireland to the USA. The first slide in the video tells the story of how I came to write the song and why I have waited so long to actually release it. I recorded the guitar and all vocals on Garage Band and sent the files to producer Stu Wilson who added the keyboards and blended the vocals. Please wait until the end of the video to see details of charities that you might consider supporting.”
