A Lickety-Split Performance

We interrupt this program for a brief digression into the actual life of the Blogger.

Laura and I sang this song at the Musical Instrument Museum on Saturday. The sound quality isn’t tip-top, but hopefully you get the idea.

That’s a lot of words, ladies and gentlemen.

This is called mouth music, sung in Gaelic, and the sound of the words and the rhythm are more important than the meaning of the words. Makes you want to do a jig, doesn’t it? (That’s because it’s dancing music.)

As long as we’ve digressed into my life, I should tell you that I got the job teaching at Archway Classical Academy, North Phoenix. I am officially an elementary music teacher! I’m absolutely thrilled.

End of update. See you tomorrow for the Tract of Give Us Rest!
