a hobo's song

We’re off tonight with a bunch of folks to see Gaelic Storm, the band many folks remember as being the band in steerage in Titanic. They are a really kick-ass band live, and I’m expecting nothing but that from them tonight. They’ve a new fiddler, who is in this video and seems quite capable — she’ll need to be to fill Jesse’s shoes.

Here’s a sample of them on this tour from a few weeks ago, singing about Darcy’s Drunken Donkey.

First stop tonight, though — The Shepherd and the Knucklehead, pre-show, with its tons of craft beer and poutine!
