Show Notes

Slainté!  Join Phillip and David as they head over to McCarthy's Red Stag pub in Bethlehem, PA to meet up with Fig For A Kiss - an incredible local Celtic music trio. 

First, Phillip sits down with the owner and founder of McCarthy's, Neville Gardner and learn about his path to the States and starting up the shop Donegal Square and Granny McCarthy's Tea Shop (which ultimately becomes the Red Stag).

Then they are joined by Addyson, Seth and Lucas to hear their personal stories and those of the band.  Pull up a chair, pour a pint or some whiskey and enjoy the sounds of Fig For A Kiss!
