It’s an Irish Spring in Peninsula Ohio!

Don’t get all lathered up about the fact that the Vernal Equinox arrives on Thursday, trailing Spring behind it. No, no. Just extend your celebration of St. Patrick’s Day and a wearin’ o’ the green to Friday, March 20, in the historic GAR Hall in Peninsula, Ohio, at the program, Voices in the Valley (That’s the Cuyahoga Valley, son). On tap will be the local group known as Top of the Hill Band, comprised of Tina and Paul Dreisbach, both professional musicians and teachers at Hiram College, playing, respectively, wooden flute and concertina, and Irish pipes/whistle/oboe, with John Reynolds on fiddle, mandolin and tenor banjo; Kevin Johnson on guitar and—for this performance—Robin Montgomery on piano. The group plays jigs, reels and hornpipes and offers an occasional song with great spirit and a deep respect for the long tradition of Irish music.

A year-to-year record of this order is a record of the rates at which solar energy flows to and through living things. They are the arteries of the land. By tracing their response to the sun, phenology may eventually shed some light on that ultimate enigma, the land’s inner workings.” – Aldo Leopold, A
