Thank you and another season ends

James Bunting (guitar) Adam Sweet (fiddle)
We had a wonderful season this year!  We missed the South Hadley Irish Night group.  They decided to skip a year for various reasons.  That is always a lot of fun.  Also, the Holyoke St Patrick's Day Parade Committee went with a DJ this year for some reason.  They will consider us for 2020, so I hear.  Our favorite gig was at Jonathan Edwards Winery in Southington, CT.  What fun that was!  It was in the barrel room which was decorated with white terrycloth streamers, green wreaths and bowls of clover on the tables.  Jim and Adam played a mixture of ceilidh music including jigs, reels, polkas and hornpipes.  A few O'Carolan tunes were thrown in for good measure.  While we only played for an hour, Michelle and her husband said they liked us so much, which is really all that matters.  We look forward to doing it again next year.  The drive was long, but since we do play frequently at Foxwoods Casino, it is a familiar one.

See you next year, Slainte!
