Tir na nOg- Columbine 7” (Friends of Fish 23)
This is going to be a very rare item as only 90 are being made and will be available at the FdM gig on May 12th, 2018 in Glastonbury. This 7” features two cover songs done in the style that only Tir na nOg can do! Columbine is very much a classic folk song with abit of jig thrown in. I love the dark mood and the way the jews harp is used on this song. Excellent stuff. Hall of Mirrors is a cover song by Sweeney’s Men from 1969. I have never heard the original. A beautiful Scottish- English folk song, like you might expect to hear in an old pub in the countryside on a cold night in front of the fire with large mugs of ale! Excellent.
