I love the fact that in the United States, Irish music is well represented. Jenne Lennon whom I was able to interview on several occasions live in the same country. Celtic Rock band Barley Juice is just around the bend. My friend Christi Broersma who is a regular reader and contributor of this blog lives in Michigan. And who doesn’t love the month of March when you are Irish and wherever you maybe ? It happens to be the month of Saint Patrick. So here’s the latest news if you happen to be in the vicinity and you just want to listen to great Irish music:
