The Best Of Bluegrass and Irish Music.

I need a little inspiration, as with most of us at this time of the year.
All the shopping, decorating, cooking, list-making, errand-running, it all seems to overwhelm my spirit.
Oh, I'll get there, but I need a little encouragement.
I've played this video previously, but since it does the trick, I'm playing it again.
If this doesn't get you reeling......nothing else will.
Yip !

Please be sure to turn off the PLAYLIST by scrolling all the way to the bottom of the sidebar, and clicking the large ROUND button.

Cant find the button to switch off, sorry to be so thick!

Happy Thanksgiving Jo. I'll be back later to look at the video. I wasn't able to access it just now but I have enjoyed looking at all the other great posts. Always lovely catching up :)

DJan said...

Wow! Now that's the way to get going, all right. I am all fired up and other than my toes (from all that tapping I just did), I am raring to go and face the day! Thanks for that wonderful sharing, it was my first time!

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Great inspiration for sure, Jo.... We all get too busy this time of year and forget sometimes what the season is really all about.

Have a great Thanksgiving. We are headed out of town to do some hiking--after a big turkey dinner.

Happy Thanksgiving my friend!

Flat Creek Farm said...

Thank you ~ I love this and haven't heard it in forever! Going to play it NOW to rev up my day ;-) -Tammy p.s. Sally Goodin is my absolute fave fiddle tune.

great music, from a great band, and guest! sorry to hear you feel a bit down. here's something that helps me!

Man's Testament.

Question not, but live and Labour
Till yon goal be won,
Helping every feeble neighbour,
Seeking help from none;
Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own.

by Adam Lindsay Gordon.

Grumpy Old Kem: Glad you enjoyed, and since you now know how to upload a youtube video, i'll be looking for one, on your end :)

Denise: Hello again travelling lady ! Happy Thanksgiving to you also. Hope you've been able to watch the video it will set your toes to tapping.

DJan: Isn't it just grand ! I have it on my sidebar, and try to watch it as often as I can.

Betsy: I know you and George have listened to this before, but it's still one of my favorites. We can't live in the Country music state, and not rnjoy it, can we ?

Ambiance: Thanks for the kind comments, and glad you enjoyed. Happy Thanksgiving to you also !

Kipling: it's great to hear you enjoyed, since you're also from the land of fiddlin'.
I loved the poem so much, I've added it to my sidebar, to read as inspiration everyday, I hope it's OK ?
Thank you !!!

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Flat Creek: I'm so glad you enjoyed, it gives you a lift, doesn't it ;)

Matron: Yes, makes a rainy day look so much brighter ! Glad you enjoyed it !

Abraham: Hope you and Patty have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day also !
Keep those toes tapping !

Haven't heard The Chieftains in ages. That was great.

Hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving. We are having a quiet one this year. The turkey is already cooked and the kids are going to help me make pumpkin pies tomorrow.

Dear brit, your very welcome.

The list of things to do at this time of the years is endless!

Thank you for the music. It took me back to our trip to Ireland in September.

Happy Thanksgiving.
