Art’s Irish Vacation

March 17th, 2010: In honor of St. Patricks Day, Backroads and Banjos is featuring recordings that Art captured while vacationing in Ireland during the summer of 2009. While this show is a step outside of the typical trip around the American Southeast, it shows how much Irish music has influenced American Folk music tradition. Highlighted in this edition is one of Arts recordings from McGanns, a pub in the city of Doolan, with a 4-string banjo player Kevin Griffin accompanied by fiddle and guitar.
