The winds are singing Makem

Becky and I are at DPAC for the Tommy Makem show. Woohoo!

UPDATE: The show was good… not quite as good as last year‘s, IMHO, but good. Toward the end, he sang “Will Ye Go Lassie Go” — which, if my childhood had a soundtrack, would be on the album for sure — so that was a thrill. Oh, and “Waltzing With Bears.” Teehee.

    Hurrah for Tommy! :)

    Yer Man is pushing 75 y’know. (There’s some do say he’s Pulling it. :) Yet he keeps up an active schedule of concert touring & related musico-cultural activities. “For the merry-hearted boys make the best of old men.” :>

    Did the Wife tolerate enjoy the concert OK? ;}

    But your childhood DID have a soundtrack, of course. :> Lyrical & Narrative, both. And You were the Producer. :] We’re still finding the Artifacts, on those little mini-audiotapes squirreled away around the house, even Now as we’re beginning to go Waltzing With Bears ourselves. :) [Say, what’d you say your name was again? ;]

    Yes, you went On the Record long before The Blog was born, old Kiddoe. (In fact if you’d had access to the technology in utero I’m sure you’d have commenced compiling the electronic Trail before YOU were born. :)

    In the summer of our lifetimes, the skies were always blue,

    We’d weave our dreams with noble thoughts and dreams could all come true,

    Believe in all your youthful dreams and they’ll live on for you,

    When the grey October clouds go drifting by.
