Poke and a Tickle, A


While reflecting on Eric Eid-Reiner's musical compositions, my first thought was that he created 'happy music'. Indeed, as Eric himself described it, this is 'a light-hearted jig with a sense of humour'. Eric kindly arrived at Boston College one Sunday morning at eight o'clock to record this tune in the Irish Room at Gasson Hall. An unreasonable and unnatural hour, one might say, for a musician to record. Thanks for being so gracious, as always, Eric.
