Music Lovers and Historians Unite!

Love music? Are you a historian at heart? Well, I am both of these and truly enjoyed every minute of my time at the Irish Roots Cafe. Once again, Mr. O'Laughlin has exceeded expectations with this addition to his Irish Roots Cafe Podcasts. The songs combined with the historical content made me feel as though I was flying on eagle's wings. Everyday really is a holiday at the Irish Roots Cafe!
