Show 062 – On the House (2019-05-04)

posted in: Past Shows

Katie and Joe just started dealing with roofing contractors–which led to this week’s subject: drinking. Wherever there is Celtic music anywhere in the world, a song or tune about alcohol is not far behind. The pub has always been the social heart of any small town, and sharing a laugh, a song, and some stories over a pint of ale has always held a magical place in human consciousness throughout the ages.This week, we’re playing selections from Dermot Byrne, Len Graham, The High Seas, Ann Gray, Zoë Conway, Na Mooneys, Donal Clancy, Great Big Sea, Téada, Máirtín de Cógáin, Shira Kammen, Kevin Crawford, Dylan Foley, And Patrick Doocey, Joe Heaney, Bernadette Nic Gabhann, and Éamonn O’Riordan & Tony O’Connell.
