Fake Irishing non-Irishers
This evening at the library (one of my jobs) we’re having a local ensemble in to provide some "authentic traditional Irish music and dance" on the main floor. The acoustics are really terrific for unamplified sound and we host a lot of music in our program schedule.
I have to man the fiction desk so I can’t watch much more but a few moments ago I stole away to watch them tune up outside in the parking lot. I counted four sets of the GHB, someone wearing a kilt, several flat tweed caps, and even one of those those gigantic bass drums.
Boom boom boom, it went.
