Episode #121 - Welcome to Inis Fail

A listener sent us a link via for the song that opens this weeks podcast. It's one of those tunes where the name doesn't sound familiar, but as soon as you hear it, it's one of those "Hey! I know this song!" moments. Starting this show is the band A House out of Ireland - but we don't stop there, the first hour is dedicated to music from the Isle of Mists, so with a tip of the hat to Noel, we recommend you grab a Guinness and enjoy!
