Benefit concert for the Philippines--Irish music streaming live from my dining room next Monday night

My husband and his fiddle-playing partner in music, whose family is from the Philippines, are putting on a benefit concert to raise money for Doctors Without Boarders live from my dining room next Monday, November 25th, 9pm EST, that you can watch/listen too from the comfort of your own computer!

Patrick and Armand have a tremendous groove and they are pretty much right up there in the top tier of traditional Irish music and I have heard them rehearsing (couldn't really help it since they were in my dining room) and they have picked nice tunes, so if you like Irish Traditional Music beautifully played to raise money for a Good Cause, take advantage of the technology and tune in!

It is being hosted by Concert Window (here is their facebook page, which introduces them a bit better) the only catch is that you have to sign up for an account (but there's a free three week trial period during which you can cancel; after that it's 8.99 a month which gives you access to all concerts).  Once you have logged in, you scroll down until you find Patrick and Armand on Monday night, and then donate whatever you wish.  (I really have no idea how it works, but this is what I've been told...)

You will also get to see my dining room (and if that isn't incentive enough, what is.).  There are several reasons why I haven't been posting very many reviews, most urgent of which is the need to get one of the dining room doors painted and re-hung, so that concert viewers don't have to see the cats' litter box in the laundry room...


  1. Charlotte, do you know if this is something that one can go back and watch later? Because I am definitely interested, but have just purchase Doctor Who tickets for approximately the same time. And I'm afraid nerddom wins...

    1. I totally understand! I'm not sure about watching it later; Patrick's away till tomorrow, but I'll ask him when he gets back.

    2. Sadly, it's a one time deal...but I hope you enjoy the Doctor!

  2. I love Irish traditional and my mother-in-law is from the Phillipines (not that we wouldn't care anyway) ... which makes this just about perfect.

  3. Your LIFE, Charlotte!!! is kind of awesome.
    All this in your living room!!!?

    Too, too cool.

    Okay, back to that painting...

    1. Yeah, it would have been less interesting if I'd checked to see which side of the door to paint Polished Pearl, and which to paint just white. I got it wrong. Sigh.

  4. Thank you, Charlotte. I'm from the Philippines and this post, your family's efforts, moved me. So again, thank you.
