I thought I’d end the working week with a rousing Song of the Day. The song is performed by The Paul McKenna Band and their latest album Elements which Neil reviewed for Folk Radio UK back in August (read the review here). Neil had this to say about the track:
Of the album’s traditional offerings, Mickey Dam reminds us that tales of Irish immigrant labour in Scotland can always be relied on for a rousing chorus – this fine example is no exception. Paul’s guitar and vocals drive the story of wronged Tipperary farmer Michael Hays, as the tension increases Mike Vass’s fiddle adds to the drama.
The band are about to tour the album in Germany for the first time before heading over to the US for the Austin Celtic Festival. Full tour dates here.
