Happy St. Patrick’s Day…um on Monday.

irish3

Monday is St. Patrick’s Day and the Irish in me can’t wait. It’s not the green beer, or drunks with their fake Irish accents yelling “Top o’ the morning to ya.” that I enjoy the most. It’s the music. I love, love Keltic music. It speaks to my soul.

So when Monday rolls around I’ll be enjoying some magical tunes to warm the cockles of my heart, and sipping some fine Irish whiskey.

But before I go I must leave you with a little Irish joke:

An Irishman, an Englishman and a Scotsman go into a pub. Each orders a pint of Guinness. Just as the bartender hands them over, three flies buzz down and land– one, two, three– in each of the pints.

The Englishman looks disgusted, pushes his pint away and demands another… the Scotsman picks out the fly, shrugs, and takes a long swallow.

The Irishman reaches in to the glass, grabs the fly between his fingers and shakes him as hard as he can, shouting ‘Spit it out, ya bloody bastard! Spit it out!’

These are some of my all time favorite bands in the Keltic genre:
