May your coming year be filled with magic, dreams and good madness.
I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you are wonderful, and don't forget to make some art-write, draw, build, sing or live only as you can.
And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

I would like to introduce you to Mr. Dave Page, the grand-father of Gregory Page (I posted a video by Mr. Gregory Page a few days ago). Dave Page was an Uillan Piper from Ireland and I think although he died in 1987 he really deserves to be remembered.
His grand-son Gregory Page created a web site about him where you can find info about his life and free downloads as well. …

Here’s a good question: if you are an experienced Irish music lover, is there any reason to buy compendium albums? The answer is assuredly, yes. No matter how much time you spend in Irish music, there are hundreds or thousands of songs, tunes, and singers whom you have not heard. Look, everyone knows what they like. That takes no knowledge or experience. You either like Clannad…Continue
We met David Doocey some time ago when he was a guest in our home while on tour with the David Munnelly Band. Like DeDannan, the no-longer-in-existence David Munnelly Band produced a rich field of musicians, all out on their own and creating real excitement. Artists such as Fergal Scahill, Kieran Munnelly, Shauna Mullin, Andrew Murray, and David Doocey come to…Continue

The Paul McKenna Band has a brand new tasty treat out on Compass and it is called Elements. Sensational. Four stars! The Paul McKenna Band is from Scotland and is a quartet consisting of Paul, David McNee, Sean Gray, and Ewan Baird. It is a gem, and there are two problems here. Well, maybe three. My complaint with the McKenna band for the last…Continue

We would expect these three from Clare to be excellent on their…Continue
