Book Blitz

This is the last ditch reminder/media blitz for the hilarious and moving non-fiction anthology, "Clean Cabbage in the Bucket and Other Tales From the Irish Music Trenches" At over 400 pages and 70-odd stories with 20 pages of photos, it's only a stocking stuffer if you happen to be Sasquatch! It's an out and out good gift. It's re-readable - full of stories you'll want to tell and talk about. Don't just take my word for it. After all I have a vested interest in the thing. And I'm biased to boot. Below is what a number of noted/notorious writers and performers had to say about this thoroughly enjoyable book. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "It's a great read and had me in stitches laughing for a few weeks. It tells of life on the road and the fun and frolics of some of our favourite bards. It's well worth a read and would make a great Christmas gift for many Dads out there. Many of my friends have enjoyed it as well. All have the same reaction. …belly laughs!" - Columnist Shay Clarke/"Raised on Songs & Stories" -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Got a copy of the book a while back…Still enjoying it…Glad to know the road hasn't changed…HA! HA!" Pete St.John /Multi-Time Ireland's Songwriter of the Year The Rare Ould Times, Fields of Athenry, etc. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Expert Storytellers! The great yarns come one after another! Just try reading one story and putting the book down. It's impossible!" - Mike Farragher /The Celtic Lounge & - The Irish Voice -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Funny, Poignant, Shocking, Memorable, Illuminating, Insightful…a Very Compelling Read and a Top Shelf Selection!" -John O'Brien, Jr./ The Ohio Irish American News -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Great untold stories of the men behind the mike, perfect for dipping into and eclectic in its styles. Damon Runyon meets Frank O'Connor, with a dash of Brendan Behan thrown in for very good measure. I loved it!" - Irish Writer/Performer/Teacher Declan Forde -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "I enjoyed the bewk very much! Great stories and all around well-told, but then why wouldn't it be? Ye're all great story tellers! -Danny Doyle/ Ireland's Leading Balladeer -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It's as easy to get as slapping a colicky baby off the throne.
