LISTEN TO THIS
I continue my infatuation with Celtic Woman. Have I mentioned I'm in love with Lisa Kelly?
You know what I have always admired about the Irish/Scots is that they connected with their homeland. Their songs seem to always be about home. "Turn your back on the land, face the sea." "Send me a song." Listen to the words. This is a song that celebrates their land.
I read a book years ago that talked about the presence of the Irish/Scots in America's wars. The premise was that war was in their history and that the reason the south fought so valiantly was that they were populated by people of Irish/Scots extraction and war was in their blood. That's an interesting thesis. I love their music and I'm not Irish at all.
