Thursday Night Irish Music Byte

Boston Red Sox St. Patrick's Day Uniforms

Irish music week continues and tonight we return our attention to the Irish Rovers. The Irish Rovers are a Canadian Irish folk group created in 1963 and named after the traditional song “The Irish Rover”. The primary voices heard in the group’s songs were Will Millar (tenor) and Jimmy Ferguson (baritone).

Tonight’s song is the “The Wind That Shakes The Corn”. The lyrics detail how a young Irish Fenian takes up arms against the British when his love is killed by an English bullet. Please enjoy.
