Music for St. Paddy's Eve

St. Patrick's Day and Irishfest weekend being close to holy days in my wife's Clan Cooley (they are fairly important to my McDonalds as well), today features more Celtic rock.

The Reddess and I are fans of Black 47 who we have seen at Irishfest, Summerfest and at the band's home venue, Connolly's in New York. They are huge lefties but lots of fun and lead singer Larry Kirwan is a pleasant enough guy to have on the next stool.




One of my favorites in the genre is the Pogue's "Dirty Old Town."



Finally, since it is also Palm Sunday, I leave you with U2 performing its signature sign-off song, "40", an adaption of Psalm 40:1-3.
