Thread Name: St. Patrick's Day favourites
Subject: RE: St. Patrick's Day favourites
We're also playing on St. Pat's day, but at a sort of redneck Irish bar, so we don't get any grief over the rebel songs.

Among the most requested is the dreaded Unicorn song, Danny Boy, A Nation Once Again, Seven Drunken Nights, Maid of Fife, Mary Mac and generally anything they can stomp too (clapping being next to impossible while standing and holding a beer).

We also eschew the ballads because of the crowd noise. Our favorites include One Morning in May (a version of the Nightengale), Right All Right, and a rather uptempo Star of the County Down segueing right into a rocking Kid on the Mountain.
