FESTIVUS! It’s Time for The Traditional Airing of Grievances
Happy Festivus, everyone!
Pending the traditional Feats of Strength, I now commence the Airing of Grievances.
1.) Somebody took almost all the Paddy Glackin stuff off of Spotify.
2.) I tried to buy the new recording from one of my favorite fiddlers, Brid Harper, but it’s only available if I pay in Monopoly money. Or "euros," they call it. Whatever.
3.) "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," sung as a happy, uptempo song of Christmas cheer. I mean, seriously.
4.) People who don’t know any Mel Torme except for "The Christmas Song." That dude could rock the house back in the day.
5.) Darcy Noonan hasn’t released a CD yet (that I can find, anyway), and that’s a shame. Terrific fiddle player.
6.) It’s been ten years since the last James Kelly CD.
7.) Wonderful LA area player Kevin Crehan’s CD, ""An Bhábóg sa Bhádóg"" is out of print. Cannot find a copy. Would totally love to download it from some pay site. WHAT IS THIS, THE DARK AGES?!?!?
