Mary and the Soldier

This is a wonderful live take from 1976 with a very young Paul Brady, Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny performing their version of the traditional song ‘Mary and the Soldier’. Andy and Donal are long-time members of the legendary Irish folk group ‘Planxty’, and Paul was with Planxty for a short time too.
