Uh, Sorry to be Such a Downer...

Wow, my last post was certainly not very chipper, but rest assured, I'm not despondent. How about a little something cheerful? How about a cute little song about seaweed? Huh? Who doesn't like seaweed? Dúlamán is a type of seaweed that can be eaten when other foodstuffs are scarce. It lends its name to a song about two seaweed hawkers, one of whom wishes to marry the other's daughter. With his entreaties falling on deaf ears, the smitten weedmonger decides to elope with the young lady. While folk/trad powerhouse Clannad has a version of the song , I am partial to the version by folk/trad powerhouse Altan:





Yeah, this has been a perfuctory post... I had to work at a site I only work on occasion (no wireless!), and immediately afterward, I went to a local Borders' Books that is closing to loot the place pick up some bargains. Busy, busy, busy!

DOH! I'm going to leave the typo up- it's too good to be edited.

Could our lives be MORE interconnected?
Guess who just worked an Altan show on Sunday? And had some witty banter and laughs with them?
Yep, that would be ME.

Nice, Von, nice. They seem like a lovely bunch of people.
