Brothers Manus and Seamus McGuire on fiddles, Jackie Daly on button box and Garry O’Briain on guitar have created another diamond that sparkles front to back. Buttons and Bows is one…

Margeson on the Music September 2015

As most of you know, IrishFest in Milwaukee is the largest Festival of its type in the world. There are 16 stages blasting away, and this year there was a record turnout of traditional music for the real Irish/Scottish music fan. Friday night of the Fest saw a truly stunning storm. Big time. I talked to a woman who said, “I’ve lived in Milwaukee all my life and…

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling

From glen to glen, and down the mountain side

The summer’s gone, and the roses falling

Tis you, ’tis you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow

Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow

Tis I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow

Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy,…

This is depressing. Things are getting out of hand. The walls are closing in. The fog of old age descends. Last month, we reviewed a terrific album, Oga, by a wonderful 15-year-old Texas fiddle player, Hailey Sandoz. Let me repeat. 15 years old. She is terrific. A fabulous fiddler, we…

Failte Itseach!  A very welcome to all of you.  My name's Richard, a 53 year old administrative assistant living in the South Shore of Boston.  When I was 2 years old, I had a hernia operation that really shook me up a lot.  I ended up being diagnosed as having Asperger's autism, a learning and developmental disorder.  The doctors at the time didn't think I'd amount to much, and therefore, they recommended that I be put in a mental institution.  But my parents were determined to have me…

There are four albums this month to which attention must be paid. Great stuff to be sure, to be sure!

No priority order here in the albums:

Let’s start with Hailey…
