Show 263 – Death and Taxes

posted in: Past Shows

This week, we’re coming up to the tax deadline here in the US, and Katie Marie and Joe put together an hour of trad Celtic music exploring the Franklin quote, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” It’s a show about death, money…and the lack of money.

Our artists this week: Liam Kelly, Killarney, Danú, Barry & Laura Kerr, Frank Harte & Donal Lunny, Solas, Poor Man’s Gambit, Poor Man’s Fortune, Padraig Rynne, John Whelan, Trian, Foolin’ in Doolin, and Dervish.

The FairPlé score for this week: 31
