Irish step dancers compete at last year's Irish feis at the Sussex County Fairgrounds.

An Irish festival, or feis, is not your typical outdoor end-of-summer party; it's that and much, much more. The most literal meaning of the word feis is dance competition and the annual Irish American Association of Northwest Jersey Feis has that, with more than 900 Irish step dancers registered to compete.

Big Country - Steeltown: 30th Anniversary Edition Album Review

When it comes to suicide, no tragedy has an order of magnitude greater than any other: Stuart Adamson's body was found in a Hawaiian hotel room in late 2001 and a family lost a father, son and husband, whilst the world lost a man it treasured more than he seemed to believe. Raised in Scotland, Adamson had found stardom in the late 1970s via the punky - but never really punk - outfit The Skids before going on to form the more inclusive Big Country in 1982.
