Thread Name: Where will you be on March 17th?
Subject: RE: Where will you be on March 17th?
I'll be playin' for the wee ones at the local elementary school in the AM, go to Mass with my pals & their families (I was raised Protestant, but who's counting? & the Father knows me & enjoys my Music.), playin' for the Irish dancers from the Irish dancing school at a local spot in the afternoon, squeeze in a nursing home set, & in the evening singin' & playin' Whistle/Bodhran/Guitar/whatever with the Ceoli band at some society event--the only $$ gig of the day.   
    Yep, I'll have to sing the usual Danny Boy-singin' both verses gets a better tip cause the old fellers cry, as does Mother Macree-- & the other Irish American songs, It is the midwest, after all. & lots of jigs, reels, hornpipes etc.
    Can't play in the bars anymore, Dr. says stay away from all cigarette smoke. Not too conducive to making much $$ in gigs. But it's healthier.
