06.18.2014 Vote now! City Paper Best of poll closes midnight July 18th 2014!
======

~:Keep calm and vote on:~

You guys have helped vote me one of Pittsburgh's Bests EIGHT DIFFERENT TIMES. That's crazy, and wonderful! You've voted me one of the "Bests" in "Best Artist", "Best Acoustic Artist", "Best Singer/Songwriter", "Best Local Singer/Songwriter", twice "Best alt-folk/alt-country band", and twice one of Pittsburgh's "Best Solo Artists" (thanks!!) in the Pittsburgh City Paper "Best Of" poll. Let's make it nine times, shall we? Please vote for your favorites (including me :) in Pittsburgh before Midnight on July 18th (that's just after my birthday, and what a gift it would be if you voted for me!).

I know I say this every year but it is SO important that you read and follow the instructions or your vote will not be counted. It's a bit long, but please read this whole message before you vote as there is very important information in it.

If you could please take a few moments to fill in the ballot again this year, with my name (Cathasaigh) under "Best Alt-folk/Alt-country Band", I would really appreciate it.

I'm not going to be able to stress this enough:
Be sure to click "DONE" after you've finished the survey, or your vote will not be counted.
The minimum for voting is just 25 categories this year.

To vote, simply click here or on any CP icon on my website. Keep reading though, we're not done highlighting important contest rules! Also, be sure to read the full contest rules when you do click to the CP vote page, and please obey the rules! We don't want votes being thrown out because someone accidentally skipped over the first page and didn't examine the rules carefully.

Beyond voting for your favorite this and that, if you fill in at least 50 categories, you will be entered to win concert tickets, restaurant gift certificates, or overnight lodging for 2 at Seven Springs. To be eligible to win prizes, you'll need to complete at least 50 categories. If you just want to vote--you only have to complete 25 categories.

Please pass the word to all your friends and family! You don't have to be a resident of Pittsburgh (or even PA) to vote, anyone from anywhere can vote.

The deadline to vote is July 18th, 2014 at Midnight. Please vote before then! I've been known to procrastinate things myself now and again, and I know how these things can truly get away from you. Don't wait for tomorrow for what you can do today! Vote now, and cross it off your list! ^_~

Please read this whole entry before you vote as there is very important information in it.

In the last three years (2006, 2007 and 2008) you guys have helped vote me one of Pittsburgh's "Best Solo/Acoustic" artists (thanks!!), in the Pittsburgh City Paper "Best Of" poll. Well, the year has rolled around and it's time to vote again for your favorites in Pittsburgh, before September 30th at Midnight!

If you could please take a few moments to fill in the ballot, with my name under "Best Solo Musician", I'd really appreciate it. Also if you’d consider using the “write in your own category” (last one) as Cathasaigh for “Best Pittsburgh Songwriter”, that’d be so awesome.

The minimum for just voting is just 25 categories this year. That isn't so much, but if you're having a hard time remembering the name of your favorite local restaurant or shoe store, don't forget that online searches for area places can be helpful in jogging your memory.

08.02.09 Music Videos
======

A while back (okay, February), I did a TV taping at Mr. Small's Theatre that aired regionally on Comcast OnDemand. That was great, but many of my wonderful fans (you!) were outside the viewing area.

However! An excellent and rather observant fan found them on Comcast's website. This means that everyone who was unable to see them before can now see them for the first time, and everyone who has watched before will be able to continue to do so from the comfort of their own computers!

The link to both videos can be found right here. If that doesn't work, follow these directions to find them:

Go to www.comcast.net>

Click on "videos" on the sidebar>

Type in the searchbox "Cathasaigh">

The two videos, Dusty Moonlight and Call Me Hitchhiker, should come up.

AND/OR!

I've uploaded the videos to my MySpace, as well. If you go to my profile, both videos (along with the original recording of Call Me Hitchhiker from the Observer-Reporter in 2007) are in my About section.

I really hope you'll drop me a comment on my guestbook or MySpace (or a line) and let me know what you think once you see them. It would be great if you passed on the videos to a friend (or friends...Lots of them!), too.

I had a blast at the taping for them!

Peace,

12.11.08 City Paper Results
======

The City Paper "Best Of Pittsburgh" 2008 results were released to the public today.

Thank you for voting me into TWO categories this year: "Best Solo Artist" and "Best Artist"!

It is especially poignant for me this year. Unlike previous polls, I was unable to "campaign" and remind everyone to vote, as I was trying to visit a terminally ill friend, and then I was grieving when she passed away.

So Margie, this year's for you.

Thank you once more. You are all so wonderful and encouraging.

Peace,
'Saigh


09.03.08 Vote For The Best Of 2008
======

Hey there! Please read this whole entry before you vote, there's very important information in it.

It's an election year-and not just for President! In the last two years you guys have helped vote me into 2nd place "Best Solo/Acoustic Artist" in all of Pittsburgh (thanks!!), in the Pittsburgh City Paper "Best Of" poll. Well, the year has rolled around and it's time to vote again for your favorites in Pittsburgh!

I won't have time to 'campaign' this year, as a very dear friend of mine is dying of cancer and has only a short while to live. So if you could please take a few moments to fill in the ballot, with my name under "Best Solo Artist", I'd really appreciate it.

To vote, simply click any CP icon. There is one to the right. Keep reading, we're not done highlighting important contest rules, be sure to read the full contest rules when you do click to the CP vote page, too.

You know what's even cooler? Beyond voting for your favorite this and that, if you fill in at least 100 categories, you can enter into a contest to win a trip for two to Punta Cana or Cancun.

The minimum for just voting (not entering for the trip) is 25 categories. That isn't so much, but if you're having a hard time remembering the name of your favorite local restaurant or shoe store, don't forget that online searches for area places can be helpful in jogging your memory.

Also, from reading the site you'll see the rules and guidelines--please obey them! We don't want votes being thrown out because someone accidentally skipped over the first page and didn't examine the rules carefully. If you've got a lot of family members that want to vote, instead of all voting online (where they may throw our multiple votes from one IP address), please consider sending in paper ballots (which you can get by picking up a City Paper at your local library, among other places).

And please spread the word to all your friends and family! You don't have to be a resident of Pittsburgh (or even PA) to vote!

I'm not going to be able to stress this enough, so I'm going to go for the bold lettering here: Be sure to click "done" after you've finished the survey or your vote will not be counted.

The deadline to vote is September 30th, 2008 at Midnight. Please vote before then! I'm pretty much the Queen of Procrastination, myself, so I totally understand how things can just get away from you. But why wait for tomorrow, if you can vote today? ^_^

The results of the poll will be published in the December 10th issue. I'll let you know what happens in my January edition of 'Saigh's Snippets, so sign up to receive your copy.

Every vote really does matter-there are no super delegates in this election! Make yours count, for all your favorite places and people in your favorite city. Thanks so much everyone for your time and support!

Peace,
'Saigh

Yesterday, December 11th, I attended the City Paper "Best of Pittsburgh" 2007 party. At the party, the official results of the poll were released....

I'm very blessed to once again have made the list, coming in at 2nd place, this year in the new Best Solo Artist category!

Thank you so much, everyone! This means a lot to me, because it's from all of you to me. It shows that you support me and that you love my music, and it's a great encouragement.

My congratulations go to Brad Yoder (1st), Joy Ike (who tied with me for 2nd) and Bill Deasy (3rd).

01.05.07. The results are in...
======

On December 13th, the Pittsburgh City Paper released the results of their "Best of Pittsburgh" 2006 readers' poll...

I'm very blessed to have been voted Pittsburgh's 2nd Best Acoustic Artist!

If you know me personally, you know I'm not all about getting awards. But this truly means a lot to me, because this award was given to me by you-my fans. This was you telling me that I'm appreciated, that you like my music, and that you want me to keep going.

Since I can't talk to each of you in person, I want to thank my fans who voted for me. You guys are awesome, every one of you!

My congratulations go out to Brad Yoder (1st) and Emily Pinkerton (3rd).

Check out the results here: Pittsburgh City Paper.

Peace and thanks,
'Saigh
