Heading to Alberta this weekend for the Wild Rose Feis or Colorado for the Pikes Peak Feis? How about Indiana for the Indianapolis Feis or Ontario for the Greater Toronto Feis? New Jersey for the Patricia Murphy School Feis? Massachusetts for the Irish Heritage Feis MA? Or perhaps you’re going to Ohio for the Cincinnati Feis or New York for the United Irish Counties Feis.
No matter your competitive destination this weekend, we want to share four tunes you should add to your own playlist before lacing up and taking the stage. Best of luck to all competitors. And be sure to come back here and share your results!
“Great DJ” – The Ting Tings
This fun beat will get you in a peppy mood during the morning drive to competition.
“Shiny Happy People” – R.E.M.
And we’ll all be happy about your shiny, new trophy after this weekend.
