How It’s New York: The ball comes down in Times Square, and people all over the world watch when the clock strikes midnight here.
How It’s Irish: It’s a party! And who do we know that loves parties?
Welcome back! Family visits kept me from posting last week, but we hope to make 2012 a banner year for NYIA (pronounced: Nigh-ah, but nyeah works too).
Flutist Nuala Kennedy had a small do at her home on New Year’s Eve. Along with a beer-soaked train ride to get there and fireworks on the roof there were also some lovely tunes. What a nice way to begin the year.
You can hear the Nuala Kennedy Trio this week– that includes Dana Lyn (fiddle/viola) and Kyle Sanna (guitar):
Fri 6th Jan,The Living Room, Ludlow St. , 7 -8
Sunday 8th Jan , Caffe Vivaldi, 8.30pm-9.30pm
(that’s where we caught Dana and Kyle’s album launch of “The Hare Said a Prayer to the Rainbow and Followed the Fox Down the Hole” just before Thanksgiving!)
