Ireland: Birds, History, and Music Presented by George Nixon
While Ireland may not have the largest bird list in Europe, it does have an amazing history and is the heart of celtic music. On two tours that spanned mostly coastal Ireland from Belfast to the Burren near Galway, one can encounter some birds that are familiar in North America along with numerous others that never come to these shores. All along the way Irish history is all around waiting to be explored. At night the pubs become the center of social interaction and the seat of music. Celtic music has spread around the world and is popular in the U.S. and even in asian countries. In this program we’ll hear a sampling of the music and learn a bit about some of the ancient and recent history but still not forgetting the wonderful Irish scenery and birds.
