5 on Friday -- Set 309

Spinning Friday tunes since 2010...

Hope your St. Patrick's Day celebrations were filled with friends and laughter!

Mine was quiet and at home, as is usually the case. Last year marked the first time that I ever spent it out with friends -- my high school choir friends Shelley and Maureen (Maureen being in town from British Columbia at the time.)

We headed out to an Irish pub-style restaurant in our neighborhood complete with live music and a great crowd. Although we knew a snowstorm was brewing, and reserved our table early so we could get off the roads before they got too bad, no one knew that Snowmageddon was forming overhead, ready to dump 50 centimeters (nearly two feet) of the white stuff overnight.

As a bonus track, here's a song recorded at The Old Triangle, an Irish pub in Halifax that was packed with St. Patrick's Day revellers beginning early in the morning and lasting well into the night -- featuring Evans and Doherty

Right on schedule, a bit of snow fell this St. Patrick's Day, but it was a mere dusting. Nothing over which to worry our pretty heads.

For this week's set, let's go to the Emerald Isle.
