Post #158: Ben Kyle of Romantica - "Simple Life"

Post #158:  Last night, after experiencing another Twins loss at the new stadium, my cousin Brian and I walked across the street to Kieran's Irish Pub.

What's great about Kieran's is that they have live music most nights, and last night was no exception.

Ben Kyle, frontman for Romantica and originally from Belfast, played a solo acoustic set.  He was amazing!  And super nice to boot.  I introduced myself and gave him my card, and to my surprise, today he sent me an email offering to send me his CD.

I already have It's Your Weakness That I Want, and America, Romantica's two studio albums released in 2004 and 2007.  Hopefully he will be sending his new release from February called We Still Love Our Country, which consists of duets with Carrie Rodriguez.

Ben plays often in Minnesota, both with Romantica and by himself.  I encourage everyone to catch a show.  Check the 'Upcoming Concert' page for dates and locations.
