Who's the fellow who sings "The Lark"?

I've heard a fellow on LiveIreland singing "The Lark" - the one written by Kate Rusby.  He does a great job; anyone know his name?  Thanks, Gilbert of Corvallis

I would listen, but I am not a Christian and certainly not a Catholic

with perhaps a few drops of Welsh blood thanks to a confusing man who was a Jewish cantor here but a bishop in England before coming here to the United States, which have never been less united than they are right now..

Do not have a drop Irish blood in me but...

Your people and kind and generous.  Your country is beautiful.  I never saw so many people with red hair.  Never saw so many people with black hair with blues eyes.  I saw a many people in Ireland with green eyes.  In the USA green eyes are rare.

I love your music on Live Ireland 2.  I am from southern Hanover, Pennsylvania near Gettysburg, PA where the largest battle in our Civil war took place.

Margeson on the Music, April 2011

Be forewarned. At the end of this, nothing may be clearer. Hopefully, we’ll both be better informed, but this is murky stuff. It all began years ago. Fado, fado. While having lunch with legendary Sligo fiddler, Manus McGuire, the topic of regionalization in Irish traditional music reared its head. Manus resides in East Clare. He agreed with music partner, Paul Brock (sitting…

Band feature: Trans-atlantic musical quartet NicGaviskey

The girls from Co. Meath met the Detroit & Baltimore boys at the Catskills Irish Arts week in upstate New York in the summer of 2009. Their coming together in a spontaneous early morning session created a rhythm and feel to the music that was infectious not only to themselves, but to all those listening.

These young musicians forged a mighty connection in those early morning hours, and what followed for two hours was four musicians playing as…

Enya to Compose For The New Harry Potter Movie?

 The discussion  is spreading like wildfire in the internet. Enya, the best selling Irish singer/composer is said to contribute "Through the Darkness" for the new Happy Potter film. I am not really an HP fan(I love Tolkien) but if this is true, then I might be swayed to watch. We have to remember that she composed 'May it Be' for Lord of the Rings and I think it is only fitting that…

THE SURE THING, CAN DO, CAN'T MISS SYSTEM





The fifteen-cent-a-minute long distance phone call from my wife to my sister-in-law was an hour and a half long. I peered over my newspaper to the clock over Mabel's shoulder. The phone receiver blocked my view. I craned my neck.

I stopped my eavesdropping, put down my paper and took out a calculator from the drawer. Mabel looked up at me and squinted.

"You're talking us into the poorhouse." I lectured.

Mabel mouthed two… Continue

Irish Spirits

One day a mist will dance silently
across the sea
And in the sun upon arriving
the mist will morph into me

And I will wisper in her ear
an Irish boys come home again
Will she take me in and
forgive this wandering friend

Who knows ....who knows.....
pleading......I ask of thee
Watch for the mist  though..... it comes
silently from the sea
