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

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 and, to available recordings.

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.

Claddagh is a small Irish Pub chain 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
