Personal Quote:

[on his 'Stray Sod' tour] There's stuff about family and religion and all that, but a lot of the curiosities in the show are about being Irish, and what it means to be Irish. I guess maybe I'm turning into a folk act. If Buffy Sainte-Marie can come to small-town Ireland and sing songs on the Native-American modern Canadian experience, then there's hope for me.
