I am looking at this page for a CBC St Patrick’s concert scheduled for tomorrow evening and am puzzled. St. Patrick’s day isn’t till late next week and the performers include a jazz singer, an Australian tenor and a kora master from Senegal.
Maybe I’m being touchy here, but rounding up these disparate acts and calling it an Everyone’s Irish concert is, well, kind of stupid. How would it go down if we called a collection of random musical acts an Everyone’s Greek concert or an Everyone’s Chinese concert? Why is being Irish sort of a malleable joke?
