Podcast: July 19, 2014

Skinny is in New Jersey this weekend helping out his nephew Denis Moster and his family with a golf outing fundraiser for Denis. So with Houli flying solo we welcome Sean Cleland, Rob McCloud, and Rosemary O’Malley from the Irish Music School of Chicago as they give us a preview of their upcoming Francis O’Neill Irish Arts Week at Chief O’Neill’s. The three fiddlers drop their chins and the next thing you know it sounds like 50 fiddles hitting their groove at the same time. Houli tells his Seamus Cooley story, Kevin talks of Irish musical legend Kevin Henry who will be featured next week with an extraordinary faculty of master musicians for Francis O’Neill Irish Arts Week. Another gorgeous night on the river with mighty music!
