Here's a small taste of the late night musical magic we enjoyed in Ireland last week.
My nephew, Dan Gurney, is playing the accordion and his friend, Dylan Foley, is playing the fiddle. They're the young musicians nearest my camera with their backs turned to me. Dylan and Dan are both from New York but are among the best Irish musicians in the world. The other players in this session are masters of the tradition.
This was Thursday night's session that went till about 1:30 in the morning.
The next night's festivities lasted until God knows how long, but very late. It included some fancy dancing by Nathan from Canada.
