Finnegan's Wake


Saturday, September 07, 2002

The typical Irish wake is a celebration of the way a person joked and ate and drank and lived. A pair of Irish-American singers, Austin Hughes and his father, Austin, Sr., talk about this non-mournful memorial. And they sing Finnegan's Wake — a traditional tune that came long before the book of the same name by James Joyce.
