National Music Day Ireland

This is a day marked out to celebrate live music all across Ireland.
It's also the actual date of the anniversary of the Easter Rising in 1916.
With both those ideas in mind, here are images of Irish musicians at work, and a few suggestions of music to go along.

Music Road: Altan: 25th Anniversary Collection
Music Road: exiles return: karan casey & john doyle

Music Road: Cathie Ryan: Songwriter
Music Road: Lovers' Well: Matt & Shannon Heaton

As always a great post- I'm getting to know more of my Irish roots (and my husband's new found Irish roots) via your blog and the music you talk about.

Thanks also for the link- loved it!!

I always love your performance photos. You capture the moment so nicely, making me feel as if I can almost hear the music :)
