Celebrating the luck of the Irish through song

Local musician Gale Gardiner celebrated St. Patrick’s Day at Passiflora Tea Room in New Hartford on Sunday, March 17. Gardiner performed a selection of Irish songs, including “The Rose of Allendale” and songs by Van Morrison. “I am also playing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ because it fits in the theme of St. Patrick’s Day,” Gardiner said. “To me, St. Patrick’s Day is not a day to be melancholy.
