Thread Name: I'm not anti Irish.. honest
Subject: RE: I'm not anti Irish.. honest
I didn't intend to question the Clancy's intertperataion or scholarship. I simply wanted to point out that not all of their chosen performance material was from Irish sources, and to my knowledge was not presented as such. However it is this material, and that of the early 20th century "Irish/American" stage tradition, I believe most americans associate with St. Patricks Day. I primarily book myself as "playing Irish music"and I certanly know what the requests will be like on 3/17.
