Yowza, Yowza, Yowza



The Irish love American Soul, R&B and Motown, so it only seemed fitting to see musician, songwriter and producer extraordinaire Nile Rodgers in Cork, Ireland. Unfamiliar with Rodgers? No you're not.
Here are some of the artists and musical icons he's worked with:

Dance, Dance, Dance        • Le Freak        • Good Times
I Want Your Love, 1978        I Want Your Love, 2018
David Bowie        • Madonna        • Sister Sledge
The B-52s        • INXS        • Daft Punk

While visiting colorful Kinsale, we were drawn into a pub by the sounds of a fab duo singing everything from Irish folk songs to Johnny Cash. But best of all, they sang The Rattlin' Bog, a song I learned in the 4th grade along with The Erie Canal and SeƱor Don Gato and haven't heard since. Dontcha just love a good sing-along? Lalalalalaaaaaaaaa!
