Wednesday night 11/6/13 8 pm EST . Some Good Craic welcomes back to the show Andrew Sharp from the band NY Brogue. They have a new cd coming out and we'll be chatting with Andrew about it and getting a little sample from it.
"New York Brogue isn't a band (well, alright; it is now).
It isn't me, it isn't you, and it isn't a song. It's everything.
New York Brogue is the sessiun in the corner of the local pub on McLean. It's the drunk guy swaying home with too much booze and not enough money, pouring the verses of Danny Boy from out of his drooling mouth. It's the little girl you pass by in Woodlawn, humming along to the tune of Athenrye playing in her head.
It's the cry of pride coming out of the young man's mouth on stage as he drills out the lyrics of Sean South. The feeling you get in your eyes, your heart, your stomach, your throat, and your soul when you walk into a bar and the sound of a fiddle shifting out the sound of The Boatman.
That's New York Brogue."
