A big part of the reason for my trip to Albany this weekend (aside from seeing my friends) is because there’s a huge Irish/Celtic music festival going on this weekend. It started a few years before I left, and I come back to check it out every other year or so. This year one of my favorite bands, Great Big Sea, is playing here for the first time, so it’s going to be extra-fun.
On top of that, add the aforementioned friends, postcard-perfect weather, Guinness at noon, and a vendor selling gorgeous, soft alpaca yarn, and really, days just don’t get better than this one.
(Apologies if the links aren’t working. Not only did I hand-code them on the phone, but I also had to recall them from memory.)
