Celtic Sunday Brunch is an Irish music program that airs every Sunday from 11am to 1pm on WDVR (and streams live at WDVRfm.org). I host on the first Sunday of every month and, when there is one, the fifth.
WDVR is a rare thing these days: a non-profit, commercial-free, all-volunteer station supported entirely by the community. Only twice a year do we pass the hat to ask listeners to show appreciation for the work we do: Once in October, and once right about now.
As I write, we are not yet on track to meet our goal for this fundraising period, so if you're able to help in any way, now's the time!
Listen to Celtic Sunday Brunch this Sunday, April 28-- when I'll be joining Ed Saultz in the studio--and pick up the phone to show your support. Loads of great CDs and other merchandise are available as premiums. For more info, or to donate NOW via PayPal, see the WDVR website...
So, you may have noticed that I've been a bit quiet lately. Despite the rumors, I have not packed in the Irish thing and joined a Peruvian pipe band (although I have to admit, the offer was tempting). No, I was back at the fountainhead, the mother ship, the auld sod, the proud land of our fathers... yes, Ireland. I'm still organizing my photos and tales; will try to have that ready for the next Nuacht in May. Meanwhile, here's some memorable stuff from the trip, some recommendations in case you're heading over anytime soon.
It's come to my attention that my Google calendar is handier than a Facebook calendar, for people who actually intend to, you know, show up at stuff. So, here it is, in iCal format. Add this to your smartphone/tablet calendar app and see if you can squeeze in a gig or seisiun between your dental appointment and the kid's recital.
Thanks as always for being on my mailing list; I know how much email we all get, so I'm grateful for the opportunity to stay in touch like this.
(If this email was forwarded to you from a friend, please thank your friend for me-- and please sign yourself up here; it's easy, and I promise to be nice with your data. Just this newsletter, once or twice a month. Nothing else without your permission.)
Till May, slán agat.
P.S.: I get to missing you when it's only once or twice a month. Let's keep in touch in the meantime:

Spring has sprung, and (hose me down) I'm just full of wacky ideas, like this one: How about I bring a band of merry men and/or women to your home for a private party or concert?
Contact me ASAP!
