I think we need to raise the roof on this motherf!@#ker a little bit, it's just that kind of a day. So join me if you will for a hoedown featuring my favorite kind of Irish music--I'm throwing a Ceilidh--which I can do because after all not only am I part-Irish (hey, whadya want, my daddy was a rambling man), but I'm also a red-head, as you know now, through and through.
Now, just like we do at our Brooklyn home hootenanies, everyone needs to choose an instrument. I claim the fiddle, because after all that's my thing,
but the rest are up for grabs:
someone can borrow my superfly vintage Gibson mandolin--it's coming up on its 95th birthday--just don't bang it around too much in your drunkenness:
The humble pennywhistle:
and the all-important concertina:
the Irish flute:
and feel free to grab a set of Irish spoons or bones!
Grab your sheet music and a pint
and let's go!
p.s. anyone who's tired can just put their feet up, get drunk, and clap along.
