We drink and we sing . . . (the art of William Ashford)

In the spirit of the authenticity of St. Patrick's Day as it is celebrated in the United States, today's music selection is Denis Leary's "Traditional Irish Folk Song."

Today's art is from William Ashford (Wikipedia link here) - an Englishman who worked in Ireland.

For Irish music through the lens of the late 1700s and early 1800s, look to Thomas Moore's Irish melodies. (link)
