Happy New Year

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.

Margeson on the Music November 2013

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.
