"You can buy it at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/eiliskennedy2 I love her "The Parting Glass"...someone has a cover of it on YouTube, but Ellis's version is my favorite--about the best thing I've heard on…"
Good Old Pekin, Our High school "Spalding' played them on a regular basis. Jim Spears is a good friend of mine and owns an irish pub called "Jimmy's Bar" on Farmington Road in Peoria. He was, and still is, very associated with ErinFest. I would like to make their festival some day. I went to IrishFest in Milwaukee for the first time last August. That one is amazing. Biggest of them all.
Yes from Peoria, Illinois. Went to an all boys Irish catholic high school there with the Notre Dame fight song and everything. I happened across Live Ireland a few years ago and love the music they play. I can listen to it while I work on the computer. I play Live Irish music every weekend in my pub, "Galway Bay" in Ocean Shores.We now put on the largest Irish music festival every October. This year is October 20-23. Come on in and visit with a fellow Illini. Slainte, Liam
