Very lovely, it's a pleasure to hear an Irish tune played in this way. Nice work!

It is actually quite nice. And Metafilter Music has definitely been an avalanche of good songs. Perfect addition to the trend, White Hat.

My first foray into MeFi Music, and this is what I find. Exquisite.

Gives me chills... and fond memories. There's a place called Scarborough Faire here in Texas - a ren faire. I used to be in the performing company. The final song we'd sing every night before we closed was "Parting Glass."

Of all the comrades e'er I had, they're sorry for my going away,
And all the sweethearts e'er I had , they wish me one more day to stay,
But since it falls unto my lot that I should go and you should not,
I'll gently rise and softly call, goodnight and joy be with you all.

Very nice rendition White Hat. Thanks for the goosebumps. =)
