Margo Biddy O'Brien and Tim Finnegan? (26) RE: Biddy O'Brien and Tim Finnegan? 24 Apr 01

Well now!! Here in Portland we have a few more variations, but mostly from the band "Shanghaied on the Wilamette".

When Tim falls and breaks his skull there's a "rimshot" on the bodhran. When Biddy gives her a belt in the gob and leaves her sprawlin' on the floor, the mandola player (Gordy) quietly interjects "that's where she belongs". When a noggin of whiskey flies at him, Gordy blows a "siren whistle" (what are those things called, anyway?) so it sounds like a cartoon. Then when the liquor scatters over Tim, he says "what a waste of good liquor". Gordy's interjections are understated so they're really funny.

Here in Portland (Oregon) Shanghaied played at the Elephant and Castle. The Elephant and Castle is an old established place that has never had music and is now hoping to have music on a regular basis. So if you're in Portland, check it out! Especially on St.Paddy's day!
