Goodnight everyone, and have a Wearin’ of the Green weekend!

Every Friday night we smooth our way into the weekend with music, the universal language. These selections demonstrate that despite what is being passed off as art today, there is plenty of really good music available. Come along and enjoy.

Next Friday is St. Patrick’s Day. But the fun has already begun.

Saturday the St. Patrick’s Day Parade kicks off in downtown Milwaukee. You can see details here.

Our daughter, Kyla, a proud member of the Cashel Dennehy School of Irish Dance will be marching in the parade while Mom and Dad freeze.

To get you in the mood if that’s absolutely necessary our musical theme this week is, o’ course, Irish, and we’ve got some great stuff so let’s get started.

We begin with an instrumental of a song that has absolutely nothing to do with the Irish. It was first done by the British rock group Queen. British.

So, to repeat, not an ounce of Irish. Unless, o’course,  it’s given special treatment by the Red Hot Chilli Pipers.

OK. Scottish. Close enough.

You’ll love the music and this cute video.

The Pipers are always a big hit at Milwaukee’s Irish Fest.

Last night (Thursday) We Banjo 3 played a sold out concert at Milwaukee’s Irish Cultural and Heritage Center.

They are also an Irish Fest favorite. From  last year’s gathering…

Now a potpourri of exciting musicians.

Dervish, Moya Brennan, Cormac De Barra, Seamie O’Dowd, Andy Irvine, Kevin Burke, Rick Epping & Moxie all get together to perform “The Kesh Jig Set.”

Did I mention Irish Fest?

Sure wish this group would book a tour here. I know they would have the lakefront jumping.

An Irish family band, the Corrs write their own material and play an assortment of instruments like fiddles,  bodhráns,  guitars, drums and keyboards.

That’s it for this week.

Goodnight.

Sleep well.

Have a great weekend.

And God bless the Irish!

We close with a true classic.

Cue the pandemonium.
