My Irish & English Language Song Videos

I’ve just released 10 new Irish song videos,
They were recorded at the Irish Roots Cafe.
All are on YouTube;some are on Fandalism;
and some on Reverbnation.

Roughly half of them are in Irish (gaeilge)
and half are in English. Some are 4 or 5
centuries old. I have performed most of them
in public over the last few years. You can
listen to these videos for free, and most are
available for purchase at CD Baby….

Traditional and Sean Nós
Songs like Over the Mountain are traditional Irish,
with Sean Nós styling (but not in the Irish language).
‘One Morning in June’ is macaronic, that is, a mixture
of Irish and English language. ‘Bean Pháidín’ is all
in the Irish language, and considered Sean Nós.

Click below to watch and listen:

Bean Pháidín (Paddy’s wife)
The Farmer Michael Hayes
Sadhbh Ni Bhruinneallaigh – Sadhbh Ní Mhuinghile
One Morning in June – Slán Agus Beannacht
Si Do Mhaimeo i; cailleach an airgid; The Irish Wedding Song
Skibbereen (full traditional version)
The Boys of Mullaghbawn
The Apple, an T-Ull
Come with me Over the Mountain
The Rocks of Bawn
Óró Sé do bhaithe ‘bhaile – Óró Sé Do Bheatha Abhaile

Live Performances
I do perform these songs live and solo, but
also with the Irish Roots Cafe house band, which
adds more tunes, singers, and instrumentation
(fiddle, mandolin, guitar)!

Lawrence,Live Sean Nós & trad
Traditional and Sean Nós with session tunes.
Our next show with the band will be at
the Granada theatre in Lawrence Kansas
on Sept. 15. (On that day we also have a
free Irish musicians session and traditional
Irish song session, that everyone can join
in on, in Lawrence). Here is a link to our
event page for the day:

Next Stop: Louisville
After the Lawrence, Kansas, show for the band,
my next appearance will be for our displays and
genealogy presentations in Louisville at Bellarmine
University, for the Irish Fest, the weekend of Sept. 27-29.

That’s all for now on this front! Hope to see you
this month in Lawrence, Kansas or Louisville, KY.
(and remember, we do take national bookings!)
