Mike OLaughlin at the Irish Roots Cafe

Date of event, Friday, July 11
time: 4 oclock Eastern time, 3 oclock Central.

Very Simple To Do
Yes, all you need is your laptop or desktop
computer. Click the link below and you are there.
If you click on the reminder button, they will
send you a reminder e-mail before the show, which
is helpful.

How it Works
It is simple. You will see me on the screen,
I will chat a bit and sing for this event on Friday
at 4 oclock Eastern time. (9 oclock in Ireland I think).
Just follow the simple instruction they have on the screen.

You can, if you want, type on your keyboard and I
will see what you type as you type it. I will respond
on the screen best as I can. That’s the deal.

Where am I..
This day I am at the Irish Roots Cafe in the back room, chatting
with you as we go along. For some shows, members of the
Irish Roots Cafe house band may come along. (We are
preparing for the Dublin, Ohio Irish Festival for the
next two weeks.) That can add a fiddle or mandolin and
more to the show.) I also do these streaming video shows
at other spots in the community, like pubs and house parties.

Todays Plan
I will try three traditional Irish songs concerning
County Kerry, and chat a bit as we go along.
The three songs, in three different styles are,

1. The Accursed Kerryman (in Irish)

2. The Rambling Kerryman (in English)

3. Days of the Kerry Dancing.

There you have it. If you like what you see
or hear you can even leave a small tip, but
that is totally optional.

I may try some genealogy related broadcasts too,
depending on your requests, so feel free to pass
on any ideas. There is no limit to what this
streaming video can do.
