Posts Tagged ‘South Side Irish song’

This is the only time of year that we eat corned beef with cabbage, carrots and potatoes and warm soda bread with butter slathered on top. I often make several loaves to share. This year I won’t be able to. Some years are like that. Instead, our dinner will simmer while chores and some project are done, and maybe, just maybe, if the luck o’ the Irish is upon me, The Quiet Man with John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara will magically appear on the television screen.

In the meantime, I thought you might like to listen to a version of Danny Boy by one of our favorite local groups, Arranmore. We have seen Arranmore perform several times and this rendering always tugs at my heart.

Many of Arranmore’s musicians were born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, which is home of many of Irish descent. Where else would one find the Chicago River turning green each year? Parades are anticipated events both in the city and suburbs. It seems all of Chicago is Irish on St. Paddy’s Day, and no where more so than the South Side of Chicago.

South Side Irish, by Arranmore, is played on March 17 on local stations and in pubs and bars. I thought you might enjoy it.
