patrick season: unexpected Irish music

It’s an interesting thing, Irish music, encompassing greatest joy and greatest sorrow, making a good companion in solitude and yet connecting people in the immediate moment, and across time and space, holding at once songs that are bawdy, funny, and silly and including heart drawn poetry and deep feelings of the spirit as well

music for your Saint Patrick's Day from voices you may not have heard, and in ways you may not have heard them

tuning up for Saint Patrick's Day
tuning up for Saint Patrick's Day, continued

and, also. Live Ireland will be broadcasting live from Temple Bar in Dublin on Saint Patrick's Day (as they do every day) for a bit of live craic and no doubt a good bit of the sillier sorts of music along with the classics.
