Phil Chester did an awesome job on our new video! Watch it and let us know what you think:
Fiona is Bryan’s 3-month old daughter. She’s ready for St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow — are you? Here’s her dressed in her best for dad’s birthday tomorrow (3/17)! Need to know where we’re playing and when? http://www.thedrowsylads.com
This past Wednesday night, at our show with the Westerville Central Orchestra, we played a slower tune, the melody line of this song. Paul Brady sings this song, with backing from Andy Irvine. It’s awesome! I can’t listen to it just one time through…needs to be on repeat. What will you give Josh for him …
Tonight! Tonight! Sarah McPeak conducts the Westerville Central Orchestra, with featured guest artists, The Drowsy Lads + Regan-Rankin Irish dancers + John Jackson (Bluegrass guitar shredder wunderkind). Original orchestral arrangements Phil wrote for this orchestra. 7:30pm. $5. At Westerville Central High School. Here’s a video from the 2011 concert we did with the orchestra:
Joe Moriarty, seasoned lead dancer from Riverdance, linked up with us at Dublin Irish Festival a few years ago. Since then, he’s performed with us a few times.

Whoever can comment and is the first to say correctly where this is — we’ll give you a beer and cd at our next show! Happy hunting… Josh: “Oh, how sad I am! No one is here to listen to my gorgeous voice (pout, pout).”
My friend, Dave McLaughlin, wanted to do an interview to talk about The Drowsy Lads and some of our sordid, mysterious history. Here’s the link to the transcript. If you look outside and are defeated by this picture, then kill some time at work by reading this!
