October Irish session

October has very nearly come and gone with nary an update.  I knew that this school year was going to be a busy one but I was unprepared for just how busy.  Luckily I will have a chance to tweak my schedule considerably come January but in the meantime it’s all I can do to just hold on for the ride.

Our October session was another lovely one with Robin, Dennis, Gerry, Tim, Sarah, Leila, Maia, Brandi, Abram, and Arianne and also their little ones in attendance.

The tune list:

Peeler’s Jacket
Paddy Fahy’s/Porthole of the Kelp/The Holly Bush
Lakes of Sligo
Old Joe Clark
Lark in the Morning
Out on the Ocean
Old Tipperary
Caesar’s Waltz into Reel Beatrice
Skye Boat Song
Trip to Skye
Sligo Maid
Barney Brolligan
Lad O’Beirne’s
King of the Fairies
Geese at the Bog into Hag at the Churn

This post was created in October and it is now January 18!  I think I need to change my approach.

I have so many things I’ve been wanting to post about like our new homeschooling rhythm now that Liam is dual enrolled, a transformative performance experience we had recently as a band, my health challenges, and Atticus’s newfound exultation over dance class and cello lessons but the time slips away from me.  In fact, this very post has been sitting in my ‘to publish’ queue for months now because I wanted to link every tune to a source where the dots can be found and I haven’t been able to find the time to do that.

I think this is a common problem when you spend your time around little children.  You get into the habit of spoon feeding people.  If you want to find a tune, most of them can be found here if you do a search on the name.

New plan: quantity over quality.  This blog serves mainly as an extension of my doddering long term memory so I think I’ll be best served by just trying to get stuff out there instead of wringing my hands over my failure to make it appear just so.
