A shot of St. Patrick's Day this week on Radio M. We bring you to Chicago's The Abbey Pub for another installment of From the Stage. For a decade this group of mostly Chicago South Siders has been pushing the boudries of traditional Irish music, coupling traditional instrumentation with rock/punk sounds. The result is nothing short of high energy. Also Noel Rice of Chicago's Irish American Heritage Center stops by to talk about early Chicago Irish music. Plus, a cut from the forthcoming releaseâ€”Umalali, from the Garifuna Women's Project.
