Of course we are. I mean, I just got home from Ireland and I'm jet lagged. And it's going to be 90+ degrees on Sunday. Where else would we be performing? Here's the history:
2010: Just back from Ireland and jet lagged.
At our 2010 performance, I'd just come from a Minnesota State Arts Board trip to attend two harp festivals in Ireland. I was full of music and ideas and the band and I even debuted a couple of new songs I'd written on the Emerald Isle. I don't remember a moment of the performance - that's how jet lagged I was. But I hear it was lovely and that my babbling, incoherent commentary was..."charming."
2011: Hotter than...
Last year the crowd was big and friendly and responsive - people even danced improvised Irish jigs - despite the oppressive heat and humidity.
So yes, it's all coming together, people. The stars (and the temperature and the post-vacation stupor) are aligned. Riverfront Park is a great place to spend a day and a wonderful venue for music. So slather on your sunscreen and bring your hat and come out Sunday to hear us play some Irish favorites, my original music and perhaps even a brand new song or two (depending on if I can make sense of all the notes floating around in my very confused, time-challenged brain). There'll also be great art and yummy summertime refreshments available!
