Aoife O’Donovan: ‘The Lakes of Pontchartrain’

This is an old Irish/American folk song, done beautifully by many traditional singers, notably by Paul Brady. Here it is performed by the wonderful Aoife O’Donovan, who I first heard as the lead singer of ‘Crooked Still’.

Interesting discussion on this song at Mudcat here.
