Song of the Week: “Tired By Kids” by Poitín


Today, we are halfway to St. Patrick’s Day as celebrated on the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast.  Thus this week’s song is an Irish folk tune from halfway around the world in the Czech Republic, where the band Poitín is one of the most prominent members of the Irish pub music scene.

I can related to the subject matter of this tune “Tired By Kids” as related on the band’s website:

Tom (concertina) wrote the last tune in this set and named it after his own experience as a father of three kids and owner of a very boisterous dog. Celebrating the ups and downs of parenthood!
