It's Monday rehearsal night for the Hollywood Choir at the Cochran Avenue Baptist Church in mid-city L.A., but instead of a rousing gospel tune, the 65-member choir is dissecting the intervals and harmonies of a lilting arrangement of "Danny Boy. " It is one of three songs (including a Gaelic version of the Emerald Isle's national anthem) they will be performing at Thursday's "This Is Ireland" concert at UCLA's Royce Hall . "A gospel choir singing Irish songs does sound surprising," says the choir's buoyant leader Blinky Williams, laughing.

ASHAWAGESHEK PATRICK POUPART is an urban Indian from the Lac du Flambeau band of Ojibwa; he lives in Los Angeles. He earns a living selling beaded jewelry. He spoke to photographer MARY WENTZ about his unusual name. I'll be 60 on March 17--St. Patrick's Day. Before I was born and even before my mother became pregnant with me, four Indian elders came to visit her. They were looking for someone named "Ashawageshek." She told them that there was no one there by that name.
