A friend who is a fan of the Celtic singer Méav sent me the following from her inbox. This is one I’d dearly love to go to! Don’t flood them with silly emails, okay?
Subject: Méav Newsletter August 2010
Christmas comes early with PBS!
Méav is delighted to announce that she will be performing in a new Christmas
TV special for PBS. The concert reunites Méav with her former Celtic Woman
colleague Orla Fallon, who is presenting this collection of Christmas
classics. Orla’s other guest for the evening is the gifted young singer
David Archuleta of American Idol fame. The TV special will be filmed in the
Polk Theater, Nashville, Tennessee on September 2nd at 7pm. If you would
like to be part of the invited audience for this private performance, there
are limited free tickets available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to
send an email request with your name, mailing address and phone number
before August 25th. Please state on the request that you are coming as a
guest of Méav. We will fulfill as many requests as possible while supplies
last. As it is a Christmas show, please dress for winter weather and look
festive! The show will be airing in December 2010.
Edited to add – From Orla Fallon’s blog:
I also have some very exciting news to announce in that I am filming two PBS Specials in September. It’s been hard to keep the news quiet, but I’m delighted that I can at last tell you that the first will be filmed at the beautiful Polk Theatre in Nashville on September 2. It’s a Christmas Show and I am thrilled to announce that I will be joined by former Celtic Woman Meav and American Idol sensation David Archuleta. It will be the first time for Meav and I to perform together since our CW days so it will be very special. We are both really excited about working with David, who is an extraordinary talent.
We aren’t selling tickets for the taping, but we do have some available for those of you who will be in the Nashville area on September 2. If you are interested in tickets, please click here to send an email request (or send it to email@example.com) with your name, mailing address and phone number before August 25th and we will fulfill as many requests as possible while supplies last. For those of you who can make it to the show please remember that it is a Christmas show and to dress in the appropriate seasonal attire and colors.
