Just as a note for those culturally deprived non-Irish out there...

I spent the weekend at a really lovely Celtic festival, which had two big highlights for me...

1> Watching Baka Beyond on a small, intimate stage, teaching a few hundred very happy people how to perform complex vocal harmonizations together.
2> Watching Maura O'Connell, when asked what recent songs she really loves, perform the following:

Declan O'Rourke's "Galileo".  A gorgeous, classic song indeed. Declan is incredibly popular in Ireland, but not so much elsewhere, so there's still probably time for you to be the first to love 'im on your block. More info on his music can be found on his website. You can also check out several of his other songs on YouTube.
