Greg Jowaisas Posted March 17, 2005 Share Posted March 17, 2005 I played a Catholic high school this morning (St Pat's Day)concentrating on Celtic and Appalachian music connections. Contrasting the "Whistling Gypsy Rover" with "Gypsy Davy" was fun. Contrasting "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" with "Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ya" was poignant. Lots of fun but more than a little frightening when I asked for a show of hands for those playing instruments! A count of 3 or 4 out of 60 left me wondering if what we really need in America is "No instrument left behind"!. Off to catch our local Irish band. Happy St. Paddies Day!
