On this episode of Celtic Music Lab, we talk about singers. First, we speak a little bit about Dick Gaughan who has had some recent health problems. There is a crowdfunding campaign that has been set up for his benefit. Later, we discuss Andy Irvine’s last US tour. We talk about the difficulties for musicians who want to tour in the US, the hurdles they have to go through with visas, etc. Then, we play a recorded interview from the Dublin Ohio Irish Fest with The Drowsy Lads. They talk to us about how they got started and what it’s like playing traditional music in the US. Finally, we give the upcoming Irish festival dates in the US.
