Strawing InBack in the day, I was part of an Irish tradition called, “Strawing In.”   In Ireland,  if musicians are not invited to a wedding, they create these straw head coverings and crash the wedding, incognito,  playing a wild reel to make a splashy entrance!  A group of us decided to “straw in” at a friend’s wedding in Monterey.   This headpiece was made by Micheal Roach, in the 1990’s, for me to wear . . . he had never made one before, but this was one was brilliant!!
