Over the summer we went to the Newport Irish Festival. I hadn’t been in ages. The entertainment line up was fantastic, but with an already packed summer calendar, we could only go up one afternoon.
We have seen Black 47 many, many times. I play them home a lot actually during the day, and Miss Fin loves them. When I heard they were retiring, I knew it was our last chance. I would love to see them play their last show, on November 19th in the city, but it is Mr. S’ birthday.
The kids at first were in awe of the sound. Miss P was worried the entire show because they wanted to know if there were any Irish dancers in the crowd. She was freaked out that I was going to make her get up on stage!
