The Soul Of The IrishEven though I am Irish and probably biased, I have loved the Music all my life, the wail of the pipes, the beat of the Bodhran, the haunting strains of the whistle and singing about the land and the opression and the death...but there are other forms too, music to catch you by the heels and swing you round the room until you think your heart will burst.
But then there is the lyrics...the heart and soul of our story tellers
For the beauty of Shane McGowan's lyrics makes you realise what goes on inside his head with or without drink
The story telling ability of Christy Moore and Hennessy
The Sincerity in Luke Kelly's Voice makes you believe in anything he sings
And then you have the greater ones like Sean O'Riarda and Brendan Behan, O'Reilly and others minstrels who moved from town to town with their songs
It is a passion I will take with me forever and whenever I leave Ireland I love to bring the songs with me and share them all over the world
