#59 of 356 - Hmm, Sunday and Great Big Sea for Me

The dear daughter is taking me to see Great Big Sea for my birthday in March, whoo-hoo!

This photo was taken during the Uprooted Tour in 2002. My wildest dream came true as three of my favourite Celtic Rock and Trad groups, Great Big Sea, Seven Nations and the Young Dubliners were on tour together. We three girls saw both the Vail and Denver shows that tour.

I'll be tired tho, as I will have walked in the Denver, CO Saint Patrick's Day Parade that morning. Oh well, GBS Rocks! This will be the last opportunity for Erin and I to see the band together, as Erin leaves for the UK this summer. We first saw them together at Red Rocks Amphitheater when they opened up for The Chieftains and Sinead O'Connor. That was also a fabulous show. Whatever else you think of Sinead, her voice was ethereal within the confines of Red Rocks. However, what we came away with was CDs and Tees from GBS and deserted island choice of music for me.

So Katte, put the coffee on, Erin and I will likely be spending Friday night the 12th of March at your house.

We saw GBS at the Folk Festival in 2002 (?) in Ann Arbor. LOVE them.
