Mexico by way of Ireland

 

Happy St. Patrick’s day folks, or Feliz dia de San Patricio,  here’s something that may spark your interest in Irish history today…The music on this Chieftons and Ry Cooder collaboration is as deep as the roots that link Mexican and Irish forgotten past.  The San Patricio battalion was an oppressed group of Irish immigrant recruits who left the United States Army in 1846 to fight alongside Mexico against the invading Yankees in the Mexican-American War.  Learn more Concord Music’s newest release  San Patricio.  Watch the video…

 

and this Thursday…

Tomorrow night we will be making some good noise over at Re:Fresh, Inland Empire’s National Ambassador DJ Gabe Real.  Join us for a night of wholesome music from around the world!  Green is good, now go get your Guinness on!
