"Farewell to old Ireland, the land of my childhood
Which now and forever I am going to leave
Farewell to the shores, where the shamrock is growing
It's the bright spot of beauty and the home of the brave"

~ The Emigrant's Farewell
Traditional, Sung by Cara Dillon

In honor of St. Patrick's day, Lyrical Venus is bringing you a pot of golden voiced lassies to charm your ears. This week's playlist is also a special treat in that it was put together by my dear friend Megan Glomb, who is much more knowledgeable in Celtic music than I. With artists like Sinead O'Conner, Loreena McKennitt, Cherish the Ladies, Maire Brennan and more, you're sure to get an hour's worth of Irish musical goodness! (Even if I butcher the names of the tunes as I announce them, poor things...) Tune in at the top o' the mornin! (9 am Tuesday).
