Sturgeon Bay musician experiences Irish music and culture.

Bass player and vocalist Paul Sowinski of the band Big Mouth received a surprise 60th birthday gift from his wife, Ginny, recently that will be hard to top.  Sowinski, who lives in Fish Creek, traveled to Iceland and Ireland for a month along with fellow Door County musician Julian Hagan and his wife.  Besides taking in the scenic country sides and history, Sowinski had the opportunity to experience Irish culture and music in pubs throughout Dublin. 


Sowinski found it fascinating that when a solo performance started, everyone in the pub would stop talking and give 100 percent attention to the singer.  A 27-year performer with Big Mouth & the Power Tool Horns, Sowinski returned from his trip late last Thursday in time for a performance at the Lambeau Field’s Atrium on Saturday.
