it's delta rae who does it for me lately. Lindsey, the dark-haired singer, ignites passions with her voice, like a young Sheryl crow on steroids. another of their songs, 'bottom of the river' was on sytycd earlier this week, setting that dance number on fire!....

Um, so here is a YouTube link to The Saw Doctors with "Clare Island". (Clare Island is a tiny island off the west coast of Ireland).



And yes, I know they are an aging bunch of rockers, but I've seen them live twice in Britain, and they were brilliant. They really enjoy what they do.

I know a lot of Americans have Irish ancestry so I wondered if any of you had heard of them or even seen them?

And here is the late Kirsty MacColl (She died aged only 41) I love this, but my absolute favourite is probably her most famous song "Fairytale of New York". (A collaboration with The Pogues). As far as I can gather, only Irish people "get" why it's a brilliant Christmas Day song. (I still play it every Christmas day while I am cooking.) Anyway, we are nowhere near Christmas so this is "There's a guy works down the chip shop swears he's Elvis".

kc, thank you so much for bringing kirsty maccoll into my life today! i have spent the last two hours on youtube, listening to her songs. what a fascinating woman--a talented song-writer, singer and producer. her unflinching honesty, her ability to connect with her audience, to relate to universal themes with an authentic and intimate delivery, is what made people fall in love with her....i know i did. her latest period of latin-inspired music was so vibrant, playful and full of life. i am so sorry she is not alive today.

check out this docu on kirsty maccoll's life i just finished watching. it includes snipets of her music from a body of work compiled by her throughout a diverse and everchanging musical career. bono offers some sincere words of praise and admiration for kirsty's contributions to the joshua tree album....
