No priority order here in the albums:

Let’s start with Hailey…

‘Tis the season and all that. Here is the annual column on the perfect trad music gift for that certain someone on your list.

Irish Fest. Milwaukee. August 14-17, 2014.

That’s about all you really need to know to find the greatest festival of its type in the world. Over the years, we have gone into great contortions to figure out specific schedules, stages, artists, grids, and plans to take in the best acts. It is way past that now—too many.
