So I did it.Against my best judgement I have thrown myself upon the hallowed pyre that is the adjudicator of Fleadh Cheoil.But this year because of COVID-19, the fleadh in the midwest was virtual. An…Continue

Is it necessary to point out what competitors are foreign? Isn't the name,  club or CCE branch, or city listed at registration enough?What do you believe is the true aim of declaring one as an…Continue

Technology and Trad

Working from home has only enhanced my appreciation that #MurphyRoche Irish Music School in the Chicago area is holding a virtual #MidwestFleadh. I have really found singing old songs of comfort during these uncertain times when while grateful for my health, I do feel the wear of isolation.It did get me thinking on a deeper level about technology's impact on traditional music.I have valued the opportunity to hear native singers simply by punching a name or song or region. But, I have also found…See More

The Ballad of John Williams

When I visited the Titanic Museum in 2013 I thought of this song and started singing it. Corny yes. I'm American after all!

"Thank you for your detailed response. I have gotten over the anger and accept now that when it comes to the Irish traditional scene Americans need not apply. The Irish have gotten their revenge. But they are wrong to consider this Yankee a foe."

Three time qualifier for All-Ireland. Finishing first in Midwest on two occasions. Started studying traditional Irish singing in 2008.
I enjoy listening to trad songs being sung as much, if not more,as singing. Unfortunately, the song sessions in my region America are limited. Also, what passes for trad music would not be appropriate for Fleadh. Enthusiasts are all spread out. So the only time we really get together is at fleadh qualifiers and the Fleadh Cheoil. Hoping to explore maybe virtual song circles.
