check THIS out!

so, like i promised, here are some video clips from the 2007 shannon irish show. unfortunately, since i was working the lights during the first (the dancing) half, i do not have any clips of the shannon irish dancers. however, i have bagpipes, the bodhran (a drum), and the fiddle - and all of that is almost as good.

so first, here is a clip of dm (a ukrainian from calgary who plays scottish bagpipes at the irish show) playing his pipes with jt on bodhran .



next we have dc, m's ex, playing a set of tunes on his fiddle. his playing is achingly lovely, as always. i think that perhaps everyone that hears dc play is a little bit in love with him!



now listen to that and try to tell me that you wouldn't take him home with you!

Ya. He's an amazing fiddle player. And the piper is great too. Thanks. Irish folk music is so uplifting, even when it is sorrowful. I don't know what it is. Something about it is just so elemental that it feels like you're listening to it from inside yourself.
