Distant Music, by James McLindon, tells the story of Dev, an Irish barkeeper, and two patrons on a snowy Day of Epiphany. Like most Irish barkeeps, Dev is an avid eavesdropper with a gift of gab. As he listens, Dev gives inspiration and guidance to his two patrons and gains some insight on his own life as well.
