If Kevin wins it for Male Musician of the Year, Brendan…

Margeson On The Music February 2012

So - To Ireland I went.

I tried to catch a Leprechaun, or a cute Irish man, but ended up catching a cold instead!

I guess I didn't really try hard enough for the man, but to my defence I was distracted by other Butlers Chocolate stores!!! Oh my word, their mochas are the best (especially if you ask for marshmellows on top) and they give you a lovely little piece of chocolate just for ordering something!

It was a whorlwind trip, and except for the cold I had a great time!

I'll try to get…

Going Home to Mother: A poem on Ireland

The hills seemingly run their length of the Earth, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I begin to run, I run so hard I start to feel it burning my thighs. But for all things, I wouldn't stop. I didn't want to, though it hurt. The grass on my feet, the freedom of the wind that carried the smells of life and magic on its sweet breath. I feel myself at one with what I always thought I was apart from. Oh, Mother of Life, Mother of everything sweet and beautiful,…

Welcome to the 2012 Livies. Along with TG4, these are the most eagerly anticipated Irish Traditional Music Awards of the year. The reason?

The Best Radio Station

Although I am not often moved to comment I feel this must be the best (for me at least) Radio Station ever.

Pure music with only occasional but effective chat and a playlist which rarely fails to enchant and connect with something deep within.

Margeson on the Music December 2011

There are three places you have to remember during this entire ramble.

Margeson On The Music November 2011

Christmas is approaching, and next month we’ll have a huge lineup of albums we have recommended over the past year as stocking stuffers for the trad fan in your life. Best of the Best type thing. And actually, a precursor to the vaunted 2011 Livies in which we hand out awards for the year’s best. The LiveIreland Awards are really sought after, as they represent the site here.…
