Women’s History Month/St Patrick’s Day Kick-off Mash Up

with a little Pi Day thrown in at the end. Today we celebrate women with a nod to St Patrick’s day. We start with some turnabouts of traditional ballads; segue into a set about Grace O’Malley, the pirate queen of Ireland; offer some songs of women and work; talk about the Magdalene Laundries; round out the show with a few of our favorite local singers/ singer/songwriters; wrap up with Alferd Packer Memorial Stringband’s masterpiece ‘Pi’; and go out with a tune set if there’s time. Trad songs, modern songs, songs in Gaelic; almost exclusively women’s voices. Tune in! And thank you for your support during our last fund drive. You are much appreciated!
