“Thank you for including “The Fields of Athenry.” This very, very poignant piece expresses a little of what Ireland has really been about over the centuries, beyond shamrocks and leprechauns. It was in the right spot, too. I think ending with that would be too gloomy, but following it with the next two pieces was very good planning.
It was really fun to hear “Star of the County Down,” a song that should be better known. Great fun. “The Parting Glass” is obviously a great way to end the concert.”
