Irish Country Music and More Celtic Radio

I am in a middle of a very busy week. I seldom have a chance to eat at work because I would be thinking what to do next. When you train more than 23 people by batch there are also things you consider while being in front( at least for me). Is my voice pleasant and is the room acoustics making a good job at it? Did I powder my bad head so hat it doesn’t show a shine from the ceiling lamps? Am I making sure I am animated enough and so on and so forth. I usually write this blogs hours or after my work. But not without a cup of warm tea.

Now for the news:

Pipers Unite Against White Supremacist.

Pipe players of Brittany on Sunday united against a group of US-based white supremacists who are campaigning to discredit the French region’s top piper, who happens to be a black man.. I hate this. The fact that Celtic Music is supposed to be Universal; for this to happen is outrageous.

  2. Thanks, Baxter. Hank Williams is an amazing artist. Him, Moon Mullican, Bill Monroe, Bob Wills and Jimmie Rodgers probably invented what we call country music today. I sing a lot of Hank Williams’ songs and Hank did the song I chose for a single, “I’ll sail my ship alone” (originally by Moon Mullican) live.

  3. Thanks, Baxter. I love all the old country music from America like Moon Mullican, Hank Williams and Jerry Lee Lewis and Irish artists like Crystal Swing and Linda Welby. The country, R&B, blues and rock ‘n’ roll scene in the US and its equivalent the showband and country and Irish movements in Ireland produce great and innovative music and often all these types of music are mixed in the one song. That’s what music is all about.

  4. And the transcendence of that music to the ‘New World’ is what makes it innovative. It’s like wearing a different brand of the same suit. Thanks for your ideas Patrick and I shall be following your career. Do let me know every now and then if you want something to be posted here. I would be glad to spread the news.
