Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day

Hey all,

Just wishing you a happy Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day today! We’ll be playing a party at the Portsmouth Yacht Club tonight, but there’s plenty of live music to enjoy…get out and hear some!

Ride On (for two weeks, anyway)

So last night, unplanned and on a complete whim, we launched into the classic “Ride On.” For those of you who were there, we hope you enjoyed it.

We’ve been rehearsing some other new material , which is coming together nicely. Those additions to the repertoire should be ready for prime time in two weeks…and that’s convenient timing.

Convenient because we won’t be playing next Monday night. The U.S. has its first World Cup match next Monday, so we’re giving the soccer fans all the space they need.

In the meantime, let us know what other songs you’d like to hear…and enjoy this version of “Ride On” from the author himself, Jimmy McCarthy.

St. Paddy’s 2014 at Ri Ra in Portsmouth

 

PERCHLooking for a great way to spend St. Patrick’s Day this year? Why not start the day with us at Ri Ra in Portsmouth. We’ll be playing from noon until 4, singing all your favorite Irish songs, playing tunes and making way for the step dancers when they arrive. It’s always a fun time.

Getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day this weekend? Or looking to celebrate on Saturday so you don’t miss work on Monday? Come on down to Ri Ra on Market Square in Portsmouth. They’ll be showing the Ireland v France rugby match – the last for this year’s 6 Nations Championship – at 1 p.m.

Of course, we’ll keep the afternoon moving when we play your favorite Irish songs and tunes from 2 until 5 p.m. The whole day is sure to put you in an Irish spirit and make St. Patrick proud.

Pete joins Jeff Baker at Bedford (NH) Library

We’ve often posted about how great the Irish music community is here in New England, and how we get to play music with so many talented folks. The cross-pollination continues this weekend as I get to join flute-player Jeff Baker at the Bedford NH Public Library on Sunday, March 2, starting at 2 pm.

It’ll be a lively couple of hours of tunes and songs…drop by if you’re around.
