YOU JUST can't stop an Irish music session!
A video of a grandfather and his friends playing Irish trad music together in separate little greenhouses has gone viral for its display of creativity and determination in the face of uncertain times.
Posted to Reddit yesterday by user u/itsRichHill1, the caption explained how one man in the video, a grandfather living in the United States, had always played traditional music with his friends in a local Irish Pub.
Since the pandemic closed businesses and forced people to stay in their homes or locality and away from people, he and his pals had instead regularly gathered in his back garden-- six feet apart-- to continue playing.
This worked in the spring, summer and even early autumn, but now, with the winter creeping in and the temperatures steadily dropping, sitting outside in the cold wasn't an option.
Until his daughter came up with an innovative solution, that is.
She bought her father and his friends tiny greenhouses-- just big enough for each person to sit in and play their instrument, and the result is absolutely brilliant.
Check out the video below, but be warned-- it's going to really make you miss a good trad session in an Irish pub!
