Happy St. Paddy's Day

I love St. Pat's Day mostly because I love Irish music. I play the bodhran (the Irish frame drum) and used to play with an Irish band called Cara until it disbanded. Anyway, my family always has an Irish dinner. So tonight we'll have an Irish cheddar and stout fondue followed by corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, and soda bread. Then we'll finish with key lime and grasshopper pies for desert (they're green). And we'll listen to Irish music. In honor of today here is a video of the band Evergreen. Actually it's the bodhran player, Abe Doron, playing a solo and then being joined by Gal Shahar for a bodhran duet and then the band finishes with a quick reel. Enjoy and Happy St. Paddy's Day:
