St. Patrick’s Day is coming up so some Irish music might be in order. I’ve known this gorgeous song for a long time – first heard it on a ‘Planxty’ recording from the 1970s, with Andy Irvine singing the lead. Here’s Andy playing it solo, and a very nice job he does too.
Andy’s website is here.
I recorded an a cappella version of this song on my CD ‘Folk Songs and Renovations’. You can listen to it here. It’s also for sale if you’d like to take it home!
