Castlemartyr Resort

Castlemartyr Resort

The Scarlet Duo played for a beautiful and simple civil ceremony for Rachel and Austin, followed by drinks in the bar at Castlemartyr Resort. This 5 star Hotel has a beautiful atmosphere and the guests I talked to as we were waiting for the wedding party to return  from group photos, were saying how the Halloween weekend package was lovely, very relaxing and their boy was entertained and had a ball with art and craft, spooky tour and candy!

We also had a chance during this quiet pre-drinks moment to film ourselves in the beautiful bar. It felt somehow reminiscent of a tango scene, so we filmed a couple here.

The first is called La Cumparsita.

The second is Por Una Cabeza from the film Scent of a Woman, starring Al Pacino

We have a great selection of these lively and sweet sounding Tangos in our repertoire.

A group of very interested children stood around requesting songs from Pachelbel to Phantom of the Opera to Skyrim and Irish jigs. We enjoyed digging up the memory bank and all had a laugh! A few girls had a little play which made for an excellent photo opportunity for parents!


Here are some excellent singers we have played with, along with examples of their music. Caroline Fraher is here singing Ave maria with the Scarlet String Duo Caroline Fraher Ave Maria from momentsvideos on Vimeo.   Here is Gemma Sugrue  Continue Reading
