Over hoofdrollen

Little wordplay in Dutch about lead roles and the unsavory ways to get them.

Away On Saint Patrick’s Day

A sentimental modern Irish immigrant song for the Day After Saint Patrick’s Day. As a Dutchman I apologize for the last verse, not meaning to insult anyone. Frank McLynn is willing to take the blame for those words. Rough recording to let you hear the melody. Full recording…
