Andy Irvine: ‘A Blacksmith Courted Me’

Come one, come all, for your daily fix of traditional folk music. Here is the great Andy Irvine (formerly of the famous Irish folk band ‘Planxty‘) playing the traditional song ‘A Blacksmith Courted Me’. By the way, a variant of this tune (in a major rather than a minor key) has found its way into Christian hymnody as the melody to Bunyan’s hymn ‘He Who Would Valiant Be’.
