St. Patrick's Day



HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY! Extracting Irish from both sides of my family (Matheny and Drummy) and having performed in "Finian's Rainbow," I have one burning question today... "How ARE things in Glocca Morra?"

"So I ask each weeping willow
And each brook along the way
And each lad that comes a-whistling tooralay
How are things in Glocca Morra this fine day?"

St. Patrick's Day is a wonderful prelude to Spring, which begins in 3 days! May your day be blessed and vibrant!

[NOTE: "The music was composed by Burton Lane and the lyrics written by E. Y. Harburg. The song was published in 1946 and introduced in the 1947 musical Finian's Rainbow. There is no actual Glocca Morra in Ireland (though there is a Glockamara, pronounced the same way)." —Wikipedia]

Irish eyes are smiling,

  2. I know that song.
    I saw Finian's Rainbow when I was 13. Couple years ago, but I still remember it.
