To be born into royalty is luck, to earn your own place takes talent. Martin Furey does it with every performance. He will be touring North America with his brother Finnbar who, surprise surprise, is also an excellent singer and multi-instrumentalist. Video is coming soon, but here is a track in the meantime.
Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage have released a video for the Woody Guthrie song, “Way Over Yonder in a Minor Key” in commemoration Woody’s passing 50 years ago on October 3rd. This is one of the lyrics that Billy Bragg and Wilco put to music a few years ago.
Have a listen.
Congratulations to Matthew Byrne for getting well-earned recognition for his album Horizon Lines which includes an original tune written for his wedding (last month, congrats there as well) along with great interpretations of songs we have come to expect from Matthew.
Also, big shout out to The Jeremiahs, whose second record continues the tradition of great songs and great tunes that hearken to an older time, but sound thoroughly modern.
Congratulations for continued recognition for the album “Birds Nest”
