A Little Irish Music

Tony O’Rossi here with a little mood music to start your St. Patrick’s Day. I’m a bit of a classic movie buff who’s watched the John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara in “The Quiet Man” at least 15 times during my life. Outside of it being a fun, funny, rambunctious film, it’s also full of great Irish music. And you can’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day without some lively music, so here’s the classic “Wild Colonial Boy” (which I first heard in “The Quiet Man”) sung by the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”

“Black Velvet Band” is always popular so here are The Dubliners with their version.

Of course, if you’re looking at this at the end of your day and you need a more quiet song to put you to sleep, then Bing Crosby singing Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ra from “Going My Way” may be more your speed.

A Happy and Blessed St. Patrick’s Day to All!!!
