Play it again, Hamm


Finally, we reason with season. Christmas and Klezmer music wage peace in December. Minstrel Tom O’Carroll will “tog go bog e” every St. Patrick’s Day, and cellist Kristen Miller haunts Halloween.

Hope she takes that as intended. I swear I channel her whenever I play Edvard Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King.” That sorcerer’s favorite works so well on the street that I ought to send her royalties.

But not to Grieg ‘cause he’s dead.


Jack Garvey, “Hamm Lynn” at King Richard’s Faire, answers to “To go bog e,” the title of one of O’Carroll’s CDs, is Gaelic for “take it easy.” A new film about Levon Helm, “Ain’t in It for My Health,” plays this Friday and Saturday at Portsmouth’s Music Hall Loft.
