Podcast: June 3, 2017

Flood Brothers Disposal present The Skinny & Houli Show and this we welcome musicians Rob McLeod and Vidar Skrede from the Irish Music School of Chicago as we preview the upcoming Francis O’Neill Irish Arts Week Kid’s Day Camp, at the Irish American Heritage Center June 26th through July 1st. This is the 7th year of the Kids Camp and it’s five action-packed days for kids aged 4-17 as they are fully immersed in their Irish culture with music, singing, stories, lilting, dancing, folklore and bodhran bashing! Rob and Vidar play tons of jigs, reels, and hornpipes for us and talk up the benefits for kids this summer.   Then it’s on to “Who Cares?” with special attention this week for alleged comedian Kathy Griffin. Laughs galore as Skinny & Houli do their first show of the season out on the patio watching the boats and people go by, always a treat. Join us most Wednesday nights at Lizzie McNeill’s starting at 6pm.
