Podcast: July 15, 2017

Flood Brothers Disposal present The Skinny & Houli Show and this week the lads are celebrating Katie Grennan Week in Chicago with the one and only Irish fiddler Katie Grennan on the show. It’s been quite a week for Katie, starting with her Chicago debut with Gaelic Storm at Irish Fest last Sunday night. She was sensational by the way!  Then on Tuesday night Katie was the star of OUR IRISH PUB, a fledgling TV show Houli is putting together for PBS for Hibernian Transmedia, which they shot at Lanigan’s Irish Pub in Mount Greenwood on the south side of Chicago. But of course the pinnacle of the week for Katie was her return on Wednesday night to Lizzie McNeill’s to perform for the Skinny & Houli audience and promote the upcoming Skinny & Houli Return to Heaven Ireland Tour 2017 starring special musical guest Katie Grennan! Yes, if you are on the tour with us, you get to hob nob with Katie and a growing cast of characters all over the Emerald Isle from October 19-26, including stops in Galway, Westport, The Aran Islands, Roscommon, Our Lady of Knock Shrine, Achill Island, and back to our favorite spot, The Fitzpatrick Castle in Kiliney, just outside Dublin. Sign up today cuz there’s only ten seats left on this once in a lifetime adventure! Katie discusses all of this with the lads and then our old pal, retired CFD Chief Mike Miller, a veteran of four trips to Ireland with Skinny & Houli, joins us to reminisce on the shenanigans of past trips. Today‘s show is a preview of all the fun in store for everybody next October. Please join us!
