Romantic songs for Valentine's Day at Things Celtic
*grin* Romantic... yeah! We just got done with our set at Things Celtic. The store was filled with people and there was decent-sized audience huddled into a corner of the store with us as we played the "love songs of the Brobdingnagian Bards."

You'd almost expect some cheesy 70s music to pop-up from an infomerical, but alas no. Couldn't quite say that. I mean, sure we had a nice mix of romantic songs like "Frog Kissin'" and "The Bridge", but when ye throw in the other stuff, it makes for a very "brobdingnagian" experience. You know the stuff...

Love lost - "Lish Young Buy-A-Broom"
Drunken love - "A Prudent Thief"
Dedicated love (unless she doesn't reciprocate) - "Wild Mountain Thyme"
Paternal love - "Wild Rover"
Shotgun wedding love - "Maid Went to the Mill"
Alternative love - "Faery Story"

Yeah, there was definitely a nice mix of music and a great audience. Thanks to all who came out and also to Hagar who was out on foot posting flyers around town!

Lanora reminded me the last time we did an instore several years ago. It was a bit o'a flop. I think it was on a Friday afternoon around 6pm-ish at their old location on North Lamar. No one showed. So and since we wanted people to come out to the store, we decided to head out onto Lamar and play for the folks stuck in rush hour traffic. Yes, we were inaudible, but had fun nonetheless. Glad things have changed quite a bit. Slainte!
