You Read It Here First-- Sensational New Footage Proves: Four to the Bar Was REAL!
If you follow any of my social network pages, you know that we've unearthed a slew of video of my old band. If you don't, now's the time-- links to Facebook, etc., are below. Meanwhile, here's the Four to the Bar YouTube channel. Enjoy.
Let's Do Brunch
Finally, as you come in like a lion and go out like a lamb, with that shamrock-green haze in the middle, don't forget about Celtic Sunday Brunch, the radio show that I co-host year-round.
- Next time you hear from me, I'll have an armful of recent shows ready for download, promise. Meanwhile, here's everything else to date.
- I've got a double-header coming up, on March 30 and April 6. Be sure to join me, on the air or streaming online.
- Speaking of April, next month is the first of WDVR's two fundraising periods this year, so be extra sure to tune in, phone in, and help to keep us on the air and thriving for the next six months!

Current info on all scheduled events is always available, as a list: events.PatrickClifford.com (Facebook users only, it seems) and as a calendar (perfect for your smartphone or tablet): calendar.PatrickClifford.com
My annual concert at the Hunterdon County Library, in Clinton. I'll be joined by Judy Minot and Paul Morrissett on piano and fiddle, respectively; we'll be performing songs from both of my albums, plus some other material that I'm considering for a third. Not to mention, of course, mad trad until every librarian in the house is telling us to shhhhhhh. (Reservations strongly recommended.)
The Kerry Hills Pub, Rockaway Beach NY: I believe this will be my first weekend gig-- never mind St. Patrick's Season gig-- in the boroughs since my misspent youth. To be on the safe side, I'm bringing along Marty Guilfoyle, Wielder of the Mighty Accordion and fellow transplanted New Yorker.
With The Hunterdon Fiddlers, at the River Blue Cafe in Frenchtown. I guess that my telling you about this means that it doesn't qualify as a flash-mob event, but still. The fiddlers from the Hunterdon youth orchestra will drop in on the good people of Frenchtown for their annual mini-concert at the River Blue Cafe. Given my youthful good looks, you might find it hard to spot me among the teens; I'll be the one with the guitar.
From Frenchtown, the Fiddlers head northwest to Clinton, where, immediately following the First Annual Clinton St. Patrick's Day Parade, we will attend to the needs of the masses whipped by the parade into a mad frenzy for all things Irish, musical, and otherwise jiggy. At the famous Red Mill.
Then, after seeing the Fiddlers safely off, I will join my stalwart comrades from the Irish music sessions of Hunterdon and thereabouts for two-- count em, two-- simultaneous sessions in Clinton. How will I do this? I don't know; Lucky Charms, I guess. How will you choose between them? You can't. So come visit both. At Bill Healy Designs and Clinton Family Jewelers.
St. Patrick's Day on a Monday? Boy, someone down in Corporate really muffed it this time. Ah, well, let's make the best of it. Join us at the River Blue Cafe from about 3pm till closing time at 6pm to wrap up the weekend with one last batch of songs and tunes to keep you going for the next 364 days.
Celtic Sunday Brunch is a two-hour radio program that broadcasts every Sunday from 11am to 1pm US ET (GMT -4), on the air at 89.7 FM and streaming live at wdvrfm.org. I host the first show of every month (and the fifth, when the calendar falls that way). I keep Facebook and Twitter open during the show; feel free to send thoughts and requests! Next shows:
I do my best to attend these, but you'll have a great time regardless.
Frenchtown NJ: Second and Fourth Sundays at the River Blue Cafe, 1pm to 4pm.
Lambertville NJ: First and Third Wednesdays at Mitchell's Cafe, 8:30pm to 11pm+
