Book Review: Naked in New York by Emmy Winning Irish actor/poet Alan Cooke.

A beautiful journey...

It seems that all great literary pieces of the world always include a rite of passage. Of a story about leaving the familiar and walking into the unknown. Dante's The Divine Comedy starts with

"In the midway of this our mortal life,

I found me in a gloomy wood,…

An Irish Toast to Friends & Family

Irish Toasts to Friends & Family

May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and a smooth road all the way to your door.

There are good ships,

and there are wood ships,

The ships that sail the sea.

But the best ships, are friendships,

And may they always be.

May the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty.

Here’s to you and yours,

And to mine and ours,

And if mine and ours ever come

Across you and… Continue

Interview with Dublin Artist Donie Ryan

The only time I feel alive is when I'm painting.

-Vincent Van Gogh





Donie Ryan comes across as someone whom you could talk about music and painting for hours. He also has a great sense of humor and likes the company of people with positive vibes. I am not sure if he is going to agree with all these things I write about him. Anyway, Donie has been painting for years as you will learn in this interview. He has created a lot of artworks and some he showed to me through MSN… Continue

Harvest Home concert tracks

Hey friends:
I asked my fellow band members if I could post the whole concert on the site and they said OK. I am fortunate and happy to know and play with these folks. This concert was pretty much a one-time thing, but we worked hard and had fun. Anyway, I'd be happy for your comments and critiques. So, eistigi 's bainigi sult as! PS -- I know I started Bean Phaidin too high and too fast -- I was nervous ;}

Maggie's Music

For the past couple of weeks I've been pretty busy developing a series of 16 Squidoo lenses for Maggie's Music, an independent label started over 20 years ago by hammered dulcimer player Maggie Sansone. The label specializes in what has been termed "chamber folk." While there are many solo recordings on the label, the artists often get together on each others' recordings as well. The music draws on Celtic traditions of Ireland, Scotland and other areas, with a good dash of American influence… Continue

My Celtic Music Pages

Since April I've been building lenses (web pages, but Squidoo calls them lenses because they focus on a topic) about Celtic music on Squidoo. The pages have some info about the performers, links to their pages and other online resources, plus links, mostly to Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, to available recordings.



Here's a list of Celtic Music Lens Links:

Claddagh Irish Trad Session 09/24/2008 (and every Wednesday)

Today I went to the Claddagh Irish Pub on the North Side in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.



I am not sure how long they had this Irish Trad session, but it was my first time attending.



I was amazed!



Claddagh is a small Irish Pub chain http://www.claddaghirishpubs.com/ with very beautiful pubs, great food and of course alcohol.



Anyway, this session was great. Best I had since Ireland - of course, I don't find that many in Indy... especially on the north… Continue

From Clare to Here from YouTube to LiveIreland

It was sad to learn today of Ronnie Drew's passing on Saturday. I found out from someone in the chat room during Klara McDonnell's show.



It was also mentioned that there's some Ronnie Drew and Dubliners videos on YouTube, and that made me think of the documentary From Clare to Here with Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill that I'd seen there a while ago. So I decided if it wasn't already here at LI, it should be. It's in five parts, with a total running time probably a bit over 40… Continue

Frangipan's ....

Five musicians around a magic cauldron, a clearing delighted, and a strange mixture that provide energy and pace to play until daybreak. Frangipan's, a group travelled to the music: Britain, Ireland, compositions, to find music, dance, dream, share. A horse on their instruments (violin / vocals, accordion / bouzouki, guitar / bodhràn, cello-whistle, derbouka / drum of water), they are on their way to new adventures full of complicity.

Celtic Music: liveIreland.com

My latest Squidoo lens is a natural choice: liveIreland.com, the site and station that got me inspired to create Celtic music lenses in the first place. Needless to say, I listened to the station throughout the creation of the lens, except when I was checking out the YouTube videos on the page. The first video is Klara McDonnell singing "Ride On." The other five I chose by going through the listings of videos that members of… Continue
