Boston’s Joe Derrane has just released his new album, Grove Lane on the Compass label. That is the last objective sentence you will read here on Joe Derrane. Continue

Can anyone tell me the title of an Irish song about a man who encounters Mary, Joseph, and Jesus in the spring and shares loaves of bread, fish, and wine with them? I heard it years ago on an Irish music program in Houston, Texas.
