Faire May provided the Lunch with Books audience with a soundtrack for their St. Patrick's Day week on Tuesday, March 14th. The local band performed a selection of Irish rebel tunes like “Come Out Ye Black and Tans,”“Kevin Barry”, “Take It Down from the Mast, ” and “Óró, sé do bheatha 'bhaile,” along with some familiar classics. Music was alternated with Irish poems.
Faire May's four members, Zac Gordon, Jariel Henthorn, Max McGovern, and Jacob Coughlan, collaborate to bring old-world music to the modern world. Since the creation of Faire May in 2019 they have played at various venues around West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
