County Down

A song for the Peter O'Tooles where I seem to be using the names of locations in Ireland as a metaphor for oral sex, which I am sure they don't appreciate and for which I apologize. [more inside]

Gaoth Barra na dTonn

My take on this wonderful Irish Gaelic song, which I learned from Clannad, and which was written by Diarmuid MacDiarmada. Donegaler Mefites, please don't kill me if I've mangled the pronunciation! [more inside]

Bonnie Blue Eyed Nancy

Not written by me, a song I learned ages ago in Ireland. Not much is known of where it comes from, apart from having been collected from Bess Cronin 30 years ago. I learned it from Phil Callery. I love this song for its soaring melody line; you really do imagine you're standing at the top of a mountain!

Rideau Ramble

You people are dangerous for my ego. Something a bit different now; a song in praise of my hometown of Ottawa, Ontario. This song was written for the 175th anniversary of the construction of the Rideau Canal. The tune is by a well-known local Irish musician, Frank Cassidy. This tune has a two-octave-and-a-note range, folks. Don't try this at home.

Barley & Grape Rag

A cover of the Rory Gallagher track. I decided to learn this tune instead of doing some proper work today. I think I definitely need to find where I put that pop shield....

Níl na Lá

A wonderfully sloppy version of an old Irish folk tune, recorded for the laugh, wherin an old man goes into a pub and is told to hit the road until he produces a shilling and is told to stay til morning!
