Oh, That Makes Sense

I don’t know why I didn’t wonder about this before.

Crooked Still” singer Aoife O’Donovan is the daughter ofCeltic Sojourn” host Brian O’Donovan.

I would have had very little exposure to good Celtic music if I hadn’t listened to Mr. O’Donovan’s weekend show on public radio. I’d likely never heard of Altan, one of my favorite groups of Irish musicians.

It’s a small world? In any case, wishes for continued success to him and his family members!

If you like Altan, I would suggest looking into Lunasa (who you just missed in Sommerville), Solas and Danu for other great Irish bands and of course the Tannahill Weavers across the Irish Sea.

Urm. Looking back on my blog, Mike mentioned this connection to me in a comment.

The great thing about being forgetful is that you can enjoy learning things over and over again.
