patrick season: far from home
This is an idea which, though it sometimes gets blurred in the leprechaun hats and green beer, is a major subtext of Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations. Two songs which get to the heart of the joy and sadness mixed are In My Dreams from Rosheen on musique celtique and I'm Going Back from Cathie Ryan on The Music of.What Happens.
