Here it is ... March month, or as the elders would say (and still say, now that I am approaching 'Elder' status myself - some would say I'm already there!) the "Long, hungry month of March".
Such an endearing description to describe the time that historically meant your food stores for winter have depleated!
Anyways, these days we have grocery stores! Praise the farmers and fisherfolk!
Here's a plug for East Coast Rising 97.5 Community Radio (#EastCoastRising) (@EastRisingCIOE) (communityradio.ca) in Halifax Nova Scotia, who have been playing East Coast Music regularly, and have featured some of my work. I am humbled to share the lineup with so many musicians and songwriters I admire!
I'm including this song, 'Old Irish Wake' from my first album, 'Migration Songs'. It's a song that means more to me than the sum of the words. In case you're wondering, the lovely children's voices at the end are from when mine were much younger, and we sang around the table!
Thank you Dermot!
As an added treat I'm also posting for the first time ever, a brand new song! It is a song with a message of inclusion. With the way things are these days I feel compelled to comment. We are all together. We are one.
Here is 'Shine on Me Shine on You'. Enjoy!!
Feel free to leave comments or simply say hello!
All the best for all of your days!
