Scéala an Earraigh

Greetings! Spring is here at last in Minnesota after a long winter and record-breaking snow in February. I love winter but… I’m having a great time teaching my “Songs of Frank Harte” class at the Center for Irish Music — such a wealth of material to draw on! On the gig side I was just in California with Liz Carroll at the Walker Creek Music Camp and of course had a great time with Liz. We also have a Trian gig coming up at the end of May in Wisconsin at the new Irish Fest in the Barn, and August will bring a short US Altan tour. Among other events I’m looking forward to is the Minnesota Irish Music Weekend in June — some great visiting artists as usual, including the Friel Sisters and my pal, Randal Bays — I’ll be doing interviews with audience with them and a song workshop as well. All the best, Dáithí
