This is just an excuse to plug a session.

I've been asked to provide some music for St.Patrick's night at The Railway, Angel Lane, Stratford, London E15.

I don't know what's going to happen as it depends on who turns up to play but your aall welcome to come play and sing if you are not doing anything else that night.

Hi Manitas,

That's got the Americans out of the way.

I'm free on the 17th, and I will check and see if Luxford is free as well then you could have the pleasure of the Laughing Chairs.

St Pats' night sounds like Irish music might be the thing, we only have a little of that, doing mainly English & Scandinavian Trad with some self penned weirdness thrown in.

Let me know some more details, pm if you like

Regards

Chris

Start out at 4:30 AM on the set of the Morning show on WZZM TV 13 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Will be on until 7:00 AM. Quick bite to eat and then a concert at a local factory owned by an Irishman (Byrne Electric). He puts on a full concert every year for his employee's, feeds them, and gives them the rest of the day off paid. Then its over to the Wee Friends Nursery to sing for the little folks. Then off to Quinn and Tuite's Irish pub for a 3 hour gig, and then off to Bennigans to play from 8 PM until midnight. Then into bed.

Anyone in the Lansing, Michigan area that is looking for a Fat Tuesday party, we are playing at Moriarty's Pub, 806 E. Michigan Ave, Lansing, MI on February 24 from 9:00 til Midnight.

There is a listing on our webpage with most of our public gigs. It is HERE
All the best,

Much more drunken than the proverbial skunken
The beer, will have run clear before the night was near.
As the Irish regret their pockets shrunken
By morning mist they are moribund.

But the dawn will find us gone.
To pick/steal/swindle a pocket more again.

I'll be playin' for the wee ones at the local elementary school in the AM, go to Mass with my pals & their families (I was raised Protestant, but who's counting? & the Father knows me & enjoys my Music.), playin' for the Irish dancers from the Irish dancing school at a local spot in the afternoon, squeeze in a nursing home set, & in the evening singin' & playin' Whistle/Bodhran/Guitar/whatever with the Ceoli band at some society event--the only $$ gig of the day.   
    Yep, I'll have to sing the usual Danny Boy-singin' both verses gets a better tip cause the old fellers cry, as does Mother Macree-- & the other Irish American songs, It is the midwest, after all. & lots of jigs, reels, hornpipes etc.
    Can't play in the bars anymore, Dr. says stay away from all cigarette smoke. Not too conducive to making much $$ in gigs. But it's healthier.
