For my part in celebrating St. Patrick’s Day apart from downing a pint of Guinness (other Irish drinks available). I highlighted again one of my favourite Irish artists in the shape of Energy Orchard fronted by the very talented Bap Kennedy. He coincidently has a splendid new album out now ‘Lets Start Again‘. I’ve chosen two songs one an original and a second a cover of Van Morrison’s ‘Madame George‘. I have to say ‘The Past Is Another Country‘ is such a stunning track. Live they were electric and I will never forget their spellbinding show at the Boston Arms, Tufnell Park, North London. So sit back pour yourself some of the black stuff and listen to this music and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in style.
