Music Monday: Shamrock Edition

Monday, March 4, 2013

We are less than two weeks away from my second favorite holiday. Erin go Bragh! As a descendant of Irish heritage I grew up thinking all families celebrated St. Patrick's Day with as much gusto as my family did. We'd gather in grandma and grandpa Flynn's basement, the long table set for 30+ family members and a kids table at the end, to gorge on dishes of corned beef, cabbage and vinegar, cheesy potato sides, soda bread, and any other green food we could come up with. Music would play in the background and I felt my heart expand, happy for my heritage. 

A couple years ago I visited the Emerald Isle. It was everything I hoped it would be. The people were warm and welcoming and carried a tune about them wherever they went. In celebration of all things Irish here are a few songs I've been whistling lately.  

The Parting Glass

Will You Go Lassie Go

Whiskey You're the Devil

(The last one comes from my college "drinking" parties, where vast amounts of Kool-Aid were consumed.)
