Building a home was expensive and cable wasn't a necessity when we moved in. Nearly two years later, still no cable. We're just too
I was flipping though the six snowy channels that our rabbit ears pick up the other night when I came across the High Kings concert on PBS and was nearly knocked off the couch. I don't know why I was completely taken in by Irish Folk music, but I was. Perhaps I am in a St. Patrick's Day celebratory mood a bit early. Maybe it got the Irish blood in these veins of mine pumping(my great grandfather was Irish). It could just be my affinity for the movies A Mighty Wind and Far and Away.
Whatever the cause, I am now a High Kings fan. I've got the CD on order and I'm repeatedly watching the youtubes to get my fix. I love the harmonies in their voices, the rhythm in the music and the Irish brogue that is so very evident. The tradition and the storytelling aspect of these songs is very appealing as well.
So, for just this once, I'm glad we don't have cable. You know I'd have been watching a Project Runway marathon and totally missed out on the High Kings.
This song is called The Rocky Road to Dublin. Enjoy!
