Irish melodies swept up folk singer and changed his life
Folk singer Tom May didn’t know much about Irish music until some friends gave him a cassette tape in the late 1970s that included the Furey Brothers’ rendition of “From Clare to Here.” The Battle Ground resident loved that song so much he learned to play it, and he began voraciously searching for and listening to other traditional Celtic tunes, adding them as quickly as he could to his repertoire. While his career blossomed in many different directions during that decade, May decided to also create a niche from his interest in Irish music, That led him to Kells Irish Restaurant and Pub in Portland, which hired him to take part in the establishment’s first St. Patrick’s Day celebration 19 years ago. While Kells has grown to become a nationally significant Irish Pub — hosting this region’s largest party to commemorate the patron saint of Ireland — May’s influence in folk music also has soared.
