Ah, the emerald isle calls to me with a siren's voice! My family name on both my mother and father's sides are unmistakably Irish, my great grandfather was an Irishman, and my sister has traced our family's lineage all the way back to an ancient king. Every year I say I'm going "across the pond" to visit and we never make it. *sigh* Someday....
We celebrated the American Irish Lovefest (better known as St. Patrick's Day) last night by rocking out with Irish folk rock legends, The Elders, at the Uptown Theater. Aaaaagh...Irish fiddle! You can listen to them here. And if you like what you hear and are anywhere near KC, they'll be blowing the roof off the Irish Center's Gala on April 18th. You can bet I'll be there.
Anyway, I thought I would leave you with an Irish funny to get your St. Paddy's Day started off right. Hope you enjoy!
