Lúnasa at Highline last week were wonderful–even without Seán Smyth, who we were told was studying for some kind of medical exam, it was a great night– Colin Farrell (not the actor!) subbed for him and did a great job.  I sat with Kathleen Biggins from WFUV (she hosts the show “A Thousand Welcomes”)and her friend Orla until my brother Stephen showed up, and at the table we moved to we were joined by Gregory Grene of the Prodigals (currently in residence at Paddy Reilly’s) and friends. I looked over and saw Paul Keating was sitting with Kathleen later! Paul is a guest on the April 1 Podcast, talking about the Fleadh hosted by the Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann at the Parsippany Hilton April 1-3.  Kevin thanked us journalists from the stage and it was an honor to be named along with them.  Below is a bit of video, I posted a longer one on YouTube of “The Last Pint.”)
