24 Pints Wiser
24 Pints Wiser, a musical ensemble of American craic heads performing Celtic songs and tunes performed for the local Scottish American Society's 35th Annual Robert Burns Dinner. Robert Burns is the author of the lyrics. I'm not sure where the melody comes from but I learned the fiddle part from a Dubliner's recording. A fun tune to learn and play. My hat's off to my friend, Shona McMillan for her help in understanding and providing a phonetic pronounciation for some of the lyrics. Visit her blog, Celtic Reflections, and enjoy a slice of Scottish life through her writing and photography. You'll be glad you did!
