Flood Brothers Disposal present The Skinny & Houli Show and the lads are hurtin’ today after a whirlwind St. Patrick’s Day season and election on top of that. We welcome two of Kell Chole’s superstars of the Murphy Roche School of Irish Music  and Lexia Kennedy and Delainey Schwarz are both veterans of the show and perform a variety of tunes on the fiddle, both solo and together at the end of the show with a rousing rendition of “I’ll Tell Me Ma”! Two very talented young ladies! We give a shout-out to our old pal Jerry Bern, who has just opened up his latest jewelry story Marshall Pierce on Michigan Avenue at Oak Street. Jerry offers a 50 year guarantee of wedded bliss on every engagement ring! Houli interviews Irish actor Barry Ward, who is hitting Chicago on Easter Sunday for his terrific new film MAZE, which will screen on Friday March 30th, and on Sunday April 1st at 5:15PM when the audience can meet Barry after the screening and talk to him about the film at The Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 North State Street. use the promo code IRISH for discounted tix. http://www.siskelfilmcenter.org/maze
