There’s a saying in Ireland that you may or may not have heard. It goes ‘The craic was mighty!’ and it means you’ve had a great time somewhere. It’s also a phrase that Micheál Ó Domhnaill is well used to hearing.
Micheál is the musical maestro behind LiveTrad.com, the website that hosts live traditional music sessions where the craic is, as a rule, mighty. Ok, so while you may not be standing right beside the musicians and you might not be able to sip that creamy pint of porter resting on the table, you’ll still be right in the thick of the action. You see, Micheál has has made it so that while the gig is on we can chat with all of the other music fans that are watching. Basically, this means that while your room is flooded with tinkling tin whistles, harmonious harps and battering bodhráns you could easily be chatting to Donal from Donegal or Mary from Mayo. That, of course, depends if you’re not sitting there jaw-dropped, totally mesmerized by the music.
And with St Patrick’s Day hiding tantalisingly just around the corner, we’re thinking that LiveTrad’s session on March 17th from Dublin City might just be the perfect soundtrack to our St Patrick’s Day Party!
