Our accordionist, Buddy Connolly, plays so well and so fast that, as a result of industry pressures, he has volunteered to take a steroids test. Other artists were complaining that he gave Ceili Rain an unfair advantage, and have been beating the drum for justice. We want to say categorically that we stand behind Buddy and believe his speed and style to be organically arrived-at.
Enough with the silliness! We’re off to Ireland in 2 days, can’t wait!! Some of our favorite people on the planet will be along, so it’s a great thrill for us to combine seeing the motherland with seeing our dear Ceili Brigade. While there, we hope to (here I mention famous people and products for web-spider purposes- please bear with me) run into the Chieftains, maybe be offered a ride in a Jaguar, perhaps drink some Tropicana Orange Juice or hear news of the New York Yankees spring training goings-on via the New York Times. Or maybe not. Maybe just a lot of shepherd’s pie. And Guinness. And parties with Liam Neeson, Daniel Day-Lewis and Pierce Brosnan.
Love to all-
