“Anyone acquainted with Ireland knows that the morning of St. Patrick's Day consists of the night of the seventeenth of March flavored strongly with the morning of the eighteenth.” Author Unknown
Celebrating the anniversary of St. Patrick’s death and religious feast day here we are on March 17. The Irish have now observed this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years. St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. It appears that obviously Americans celebrate all day long, from the time they wake up until they pass out. This year, 2013, the celebration started a day early.
We think there is enough being said about what’s going on this St. Patrick’s day. We would like to share some great Irish music with you. Please, enjoy the following videos.

The Jolly Rogers
The Jolly Rogers are a band of five guys who share a few common traits – a love for maritime music, an unreasoning fascination with the fantasy of Golden Age pirates and, above all, a very warped sense of humor. The result of this combination? A band that has been producing the best in sea music for over 20 years... a band who has performed all over the United States and in Europe (no, really!)... THE band that has defined the pirate sub-genre of the maritime tradition. (taken from http://jollyrogerskc.com/)
