Happy St. Patrick’s Day

by | Mar 17, 2012 | Uncategorized

One guy would grab a fiddle, another the tin whistle.  Someone would run for an accordion, and somehow we always found a drum.  Lacking musical talent, I just grabbed a beer.  We all had our part to play.

So began many great evenings during my second year as a Jesuit. I would walk out onto our porch and catch a group of guys playing Irish tunes and generally having a great time.  Our house was full of musicians that year.

One of the best was TJP contributor Ryan Duns.  Ryan has been playing Irish music since he was 8 years old, and yesterday he got the chance to show off his tin whistle talent on Detroit TV.  Enjoy the video and Have a Very Happy Saint Patricks Day.
