Songs from the Pubs of Ireland


Categories: ,


I first set foot in Ireland on February 12, 1999. I spent my first full day in Derry in Northern Ireland. On that first day, I heard Leo Doherty sing ” The Town I Loved So Well” after taking us on a tour of the city he grew up in. I spent that evening playing at Badger’s Pub where the cover photo was taken. It was there that a young man named James came out of the crowd and asked if we knew ” The Green Fields Of France” . He sang it for us as we played. These two songs changed my perception of traditional Irish music forever.

I hope you enjoy these wonderful tunes as much as I do.
