Larry, you got me again. I'm going to have to have a rubber stamp made saying 'I'm sorry Larry'. It's true I DID think you must be singing some pretty political material, and wondering why you were surprised that it was hard to get a gig. Your posts on Mudcat have always seemed to be very much from a left wing perspective and I guess I assumed much of your music was too. I wouldn't go as far as to say that most of the Irish style music I've seen and heard over the years was liteweight but it seems mostly either instrumentals or songs about 'the ould sod', with the ONLY politics being of an 'Ireland for the Irish' nature. I figured by you asking people to actually think about issues, you were on shaky ground with your average bar patron. Perhaps it's just 'too many artists, too few gigs'.
