It’s St. Paddy’s Day at the White House. Nancy Pelosi introduces the musicians. Speaker Pelosi says she agrees with the Wall Street Journal in its high assessment of the duo, the one time she agrees with the paper’s assessment of anything. President Barack Obama watches with interest, while the rest of the crowd seems oblivious to the great music performed as the guests munch of cookies and chat. But the musical duo seems genuinely inspired to be there. They play fast and loud and clear. You don’t have to be Irish or from Chicago to enjoy the show!
