Now Jed, that's a decent report on the goings-on.
At our table we raised glasses at repeats to prove we were still sober enough to do basic math.
Here's an unofficial tally, best as I recall: - No, Nay, Never, always wins, led with 8 - Whiskey In The Jar 6 - Moonshiner . . . . 4 or maybe 5 - Danny Boy . . . . 2 - Brennan . . . . . 2 - Ris'g O' Th' Moon 2 - Unicorn . . . . . 4, at least
My intense dislike for that song already amplified via wonderment at it's Irishness, was raised to new heights as we were expected to accompany, not only with voice, but with gestures!!
I'll say one thing for celtic musicians, They got guts!
If I'da been ol' Noah I'da swum out and grab'd two of those damned hatrackponies, just so's we could have a pleasant March 17 with a few IRISH TUNES!
Best moment o' the day was the crowd's chorus on Wild Mt. Thyme - done well and just once; the right number, says me.
Unsung at all, to my chagrin - Red haired Mary - Mary Mack - Rocky road to Dublin - Johnson's Motor Car - Roddy McCorley (probably wouldn't have stood anyway)
They call'd it an Irish pub, what hrmpffff!
