Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I love St. Patrick’s Day.  My favorite way to celebrate the ‘wearing of the green’ is in an Irish pub listening to great live music.  My first choice would be the James Joyce Irish Pub in Ybor City.  I’d settle for O’Shea’s here on Clematis.

This year, I’m eff-ing working.  Sigh.  But I wanted to share a little of the great music anyway.  You don’t get much more authentic than Galway Girl.

tracy and the prodigalsBut another favorite, less traditional though it may be, is Happy Man by The Prodigals.  I’ve seen them several times here at Irish Fest and even conned them into a photo.  But I had the privilege of seeing them perform at their home bar, Paddy Reilly’s in Manhattan.  If you’re ever in the Big Apple on a Friday night, you should definitely check them out.

The video quality is lousy, but the song is terrific.

Here’s wishing you a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
