Dear L: Thanks for this appreciation of the Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem, who were a source of great pride and inspiration for Irish people everywhere. They certainly permanently transformed the Irish music landscape. My oldest brother, Kevin, who was in grad school in Michigan at the time (I think), sent my brother Jesse $2 in 1959 to go out and buy The Rising of the Moon, the group's first album, on the Tradition label. We were devoted fans from then on, and had the pleasure of crossing paths with them in the Irish music world on a number of occasions over the years. Thanks too for the clips--great to see them in action again.

Thanks Laura Jane.I will listen to each one in kind again. Your work is fulfilling.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
