Subject: St. Patrick's Day Gigs?
From: Windsinger
Date: 10 Mar 06 - 12:01 PM

So of the Celtic musicians among you: who's playing where next weekend?

Myself, I may have to sit this one out. Harp-music doesn't appeal to the average rowdy-minded tavern drunk on The Day -- or when it might, it's too easily drowned out by hurdy-gurdies, concertinas, drums and the like.

More power too them, it means I can take the evening off, relax, and listen while I knock back a few shots. ;)

(I may have a quieter, smaller gig lined up for the 18th though.)

Slán,

I don't really look forward to playing on P-Day because it's such a zoo -- but the money is better than usual.

Here's what we're up to in Lexington and Northern Kentucky. I am way too old for this:

Today - Saturday, March 11th 2:00PMish

McCarthy's on Upper Street, Lexington, KY - after the parade - (w/ Beverly Buchanan, Labhrás Draper, his son Brendan, and my singing daughter, Katie. We will likely be joined by a gazzillion wiggy shtep dancers.)

(The jawdropper last year was when a couple of nearly-extinct Kildaremen traiped thru the garden door in foxy redcoat regalia having settled their horses in the back bar. Fortunately for all, the horses had priorly emptied themselves on Main Street during the parade.)

Thursday, March 16th   7:00PMish

Mulligan's, Lexington, KY - A song or two and few quiet tunes   (859) 277-0071

Unplugged and unstructured participatory Irish craic. Players,
singers, punters and clappers welcome.

Friday, March 17th

12:30PM 'til 3PM -   The Pub, Crestview, KY

5:00 - 7PM Jack Quinn's, Covington, KY
www.jackquinn.com

10PM 'til Capitulation - McCarthy's in Lexington, KY

Cheers,

Danny

The Press Room in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Curmudgeon and his group have played there every St. Patrick's since Jay Smith opened the place in '77. And Bob Frost (banjo) only missed one year. It'll be my third year as an official part of the band rather than as a "guest vocalist" later in the evening.

Hope the audience is like it was last year -- the best ever. Older crowd of listeners (!!!) earlier in the evening and a younger crowd that was more interested in listening (!!!) than carousing lter in the evening. You'd think the cover would keep the carousers downstairs, but that doesn't always happen.

Like you, Windsinger, I learned early on that my solo Scottish & Irish folk singing doesn't appeal to the rowdy crowds in the pubs... but then, they don't much appeal to me either, so everyone is happy.

But I also learned that every nursing and convalescent home around is dying for Irish music during St. Pat's week. It's great-- I have tons of gigs for the next week, and they're easy for me because I don't have to set up sound.. it's just me and my guitar, "unplugged." The pay for each gig isn't great, but with so many of them, it's a lucrative week, plus I get to play for appreciative audiences.

The only down side is that they will all want to hear those non-Irish Irish songs like McNamara's Band and When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, but I've found a way to put a bunch of the choruses into one 7-song medley that makes a great closer... They all get to sing along and have a grand time, and I don't have to learn the verses.

I'll be playing a couple of days early at a bar in a popular beach area. They found out I do "Celtic" & snagged me for some womens' event. They say that it's a good thing that I perform acoustically because they don't want the loud drunken brawl stuff.
On St. Pat's I'll be doing some of what I normally do, playing a couple of nursing homes doing the Irish American stuff & visit elementary schools storytelling, playing & singing & teaching a basic jig. Because I'm still kinda new to San Diego, I'm not in a Ceili band yet. I normally prefer a nice family Ceili to the loud rock bar scene.

I'm happy to say I'm taking part in two celebrations. (Warning - sneaking in some bald-faced promo here)

First one is on St Paddy's Day itself. In Brantford, Ontario: The Brantford Open Stage is doing a fundraiser for itself. Details here.

Second one is on the 18th, in nearby Waterford ('bout 25 minutes south of Brantford) in the newly renovated Old Town Hall. This building includes a 1904 old-fashioned concert hall / ballroom that is just a delight to perform in. Tom Jordan and Friends (including meself) are doing a concert there to raise funds for the continuing restoration of the hall as well as for certain impoverished musicians (ahem).

I agree with the previous comment from Guest. I certainly have nothing against Irish music, but I fail to see why St. Patrick's Day should be of such great significance in parts of England where the number of Irish people is minimal, whereas St. George's Day is ignored.

It's all a bit of a theme park, ain't it? I can remember spending St. Patrick's night in a fairly large town in Co. Donegal in the mid nineties. I went to seven pubs in search of traditional Irish music and found blues, rock, country, a disco and even some buggers singing "Streets of London"!, but not a trace of traditional Irish music. Had I stayed at home in Kent, I could have made a short journey into Maidstone (where the Irish are very few and far between) where they had traditional Irish music on offer for St. Patrick's night!

And as for lager with green food colouring in it: well, nuff said.

At the Boat Band gig, incidentally, we will be playing Cumbrian tunes. As any schoolboy knows, St Patrick was a Cumbrian, and taken forcibly from there to Ireland by Irish slavers. We might slip in the odd Irish jig as well, I suppose.
    Our new CD(have I already mentioned we have a new CD out?), consists exclusively of Cumbrian tunes.

Two gigs in west-end Ottawa Ontario Canada with my new band The Skirmish ("Cause it's nae a real battle").

The Barley Mow, Barrhaven (Greenbank at Strandherd), 2-6:30 p.m.

Then, same name, different location and time,
The Barley Mow, KANATA, (March Road & Terry Fox), 8 pm - 1 am.

I have officially abandoned all purism. The concept of this band is to be employable in pubs that serve good beer and pay well, and have a good time, and NOT be introspective or play practically anything that can be described as "achingly beautiful". I forced me hapless mates to learn "Wild Rover", "Black Velvet Band", and, yes, the dreaded "Unicorn". (For which I offered them inspiration in the form of the "I'll show you my tits if you'll play the Unicorn Song" post in another thread like this.)

We shall rock them. We're even doing Van Morrison's "Wild Night", with me playing mandolin instead of lead guitar. Totally legitimate Irish folksong.

A random configuration of the New England-based quartet Finest Kind will be assisting the quaffing and mastication at Lenny's Lobster Shack in Branford, CT. Instrumentation will be fiddle, banjo, whistle, concertina, guitar, baritone ukulele and tuba. And every year Barbara gets up and sings her three songs: Danny Boy, When Irish Eyes are Smiling, and God Bless America. We see the same folks year after year -- it's sorta like a big family reunion, with little kids dancing in front of the band and old folks sitting and enjoying.

A comment on "Black Velvet Band" -- try playing it andante, with a lilt and a whistful sensibility: you'll discover that it's lasted all these years 'cause it's a fine song.

"Theme Park" is a good way to describe most St. Patrick's Day celebrations. I'm doing scattered gigs throughout the month but no pubs. I get claustrophobic when the place starts to get packed and when people start getting drunk and throwing up and acting obnoxious I really get grossed out. Been there, done that and really don't want to do it again.
