Kell's Pub in Portland, Oregon is located at 112 SW 2nd, in the heart of downtown Portland, Oregon's burgeoning entertainment district. It is a comfortable pub, with a restaurant adjoining it. Both sides of Kell's serve great food and a warm welcome ... but in the pub, on the weekend, or on any night, really, the Craic (Gaelic language word for good times!) is amazing. Young people do clap and dance across the floor, just like in my song ... as do folks of every age. I've never seen anything quite like Kell's in my 35 plus years of performing all over the U.S., Canada, and overseas.

There is live Irish music 7 nights a week at Kell's, and the largest St. Patrick's Day Festival on the west coast of the U.S. takes place there each year for three, four, or five days surrounding March 17th.

Gerard and Lucille McAleese are wonderful hosts, and maintained a staff that is excellent and friendly. The McAleese family also runs Kell's Restaurant and Pub in Seattle and San Francisco. You can check out their informative, colorful website at www.kellsirish.com.

When I'm not on the road doing concerts around the U.S. of my own material, or working on my national radio broadcast, River City Folk; chances are you can hear me performing these songs (with Donny and Peggie on the weekends) at Kell's. This projectdoesn't really give you an exact sense of being part of the scene that happens on "Just Another Night at Kell's ... but it comes close ...

If you'd like to check one of my performances at Kell's Pub when you are in Portland, visit my website at www.tommayfolk.com - You will also find out lots of other info there about my national radio broadcast, my other concerts around the U.S., festivals that I organize, direct, and appear at; my book on being a singer songwriter, due out in 2007 and other assorted folk news ...

Slainte! Tom May

Special thanks to Rick Fletcher and Debbie Dutton for helping to make this project a reality. Also, a tip of the hat to my old friend Mark Moebeck in St. Louis, Missouri, who performed these songs with me for years over the St. Patrick's holiday at Kell's in Portland and First St. Alley and McGurk's in St. Louis.
