On My Quest For Ireland~~ Irish and Irish American Music…

The music of Ireland is full of tradition, longing, love and of course whiskey and beer.. Irish music can be a silly little ditty to poignant laments about the “troubles”, from the rebellion songs to the mystic. No matter where you come from the Irish music of history and tradition can soothe the soul or rouse you to have a great “craic”. I love it all…

‘The rich and poignant traditions of Irish and Irish-American music are masterfully showcased by some of today’s greatest musicians in The Kennedy Center Presents: The Irish Gala. Artists such as Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Carlos Nunez, and Ricky Skaggs join such Irish luminaries and performers as Mary Black, Nollaig Casey, Maighread and Triona Ni Dhomhnaill, Liam O’Maonlai, Riverdance, Sharon Shannon, and Donal Lunny and Coolfin. Noted actress Anjelica Huston, who was raised in Ireland, and author Frank McCourt, host this celebration of Irish music, dance, and culture.” Amazon Review
