Dublin: “They make you sing outside.“

Post by Hartmut » Wed Oct 30, 2019 5:32 am

“When I come to this great city [Dublin], I am permitted to drink inside. Very rarely am I asked to leave a pub. Likewise, I'm permitted to sleep inside. Sadly and unfortunately, my horizontal slumbers are rarely disturbed. – But when it comes to singing, they make you sing outside.“

I always remember this bit of stage banter when I think of Dublin and the cold there.
