Rebroadcast of a Saint Brigid's Session: Irish Airs and Laments.

Why?

Because it is a great performance and the video has surpassed 10,000 views!!! Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RtwGmjVeIM

For a full summary of the series visit: www.saintbrigidssessions.com

The goal of the Saint Brigid’s Sessions was to capture live unplugged performances by artists in as technically minimal and unobtrusive manner as possible in order to capture a natural sound in what really is a magnificent sounding space.

Saint Brigid’s was established to accommodate the growing Irish community in Ottawa’s Lowertown. So, it was only fitting that we record an Irish session, or as it is in Gaelic, a Seisiún.

The musicians: Frank Cassidy (whistle and banjo; he also released the CD ‘Tin Air‘); Dennis Alexander (violin and viola; and has been known to build these instruments too); and, Jeff McClintock (harmonium and guitar; and a plays in many different bands in Ottawa).

Good morning! It looks there is a Mother Nature imposed lockdown today! Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are expected by tonight. Snow, heavy at times, will continue today. The snow will taper off to scattered flurries late tonight.

Hey Peter! Always nice to hear from you... Thank you for the positive comment on the program. International travel as in my reference to London - I have a good friend that lives there and so a free place to stay which makes it affordable! And, I have been known to go to a few football matches....
