Lisa Kelly Makes Her Solo Debut at The Fred

By Nancy Price, Executive Director Peachtree City CVB

As a performer with the Irish music phenomenon Celtic Women, Dublin-born Lisa Kelly has been called the Voice of Ireland. Here in Peachtree City, however, we proudly refer to her as a hometown girl. Lisa, who settled in Peachtree City two years ago after retiring from Celtic Women, heads up the Lisa Kelly Voice Academy.

This Saturday, Lisa will make her solo debut at The Frederick Brown, Jr. Amphitheater (The Fred) here in Peachtree City. She will perform with her special guests, Chloe Agnew and Paul Byrom, before a hometown crowd that will include friends and fans from around the world. 

Lisa’s show is designed to showcase not only her vocal talents but Irish culture as well. The show includes classical and pop music and modern and traditional dancing. As a former member of Riverdance, Lisa’s husband, Scott Porter, producer and director of the show, will perform a Celtic dance solo. 

Former Celtic Woman member Chloe Agnew also will perform as will Paul Byrom, a former member of the Irish singing group Celtic Thunder. Three of Lisa’s children will sing or dance on stage, and students of her voice academy will participate in several songs. 

This is a musical event for the entire family. Tickets may be purchased at either the Fred Box Office or online at The Fred gates open at 6:30 for this performance with opening act James Casto performing at 7 pm and the Irish Ceili Band performing at 7:35.
