I’ve drawn a blank on lyrics of Ron Kavana’s ‘Glenshannig Wager’… But, found more info about the song.
I have it on a Topic Records CD compilation/ sampler from 1995 Ferreting around for info, I found out that it’s not a trad song, being cleverly written by RK and on his ‘Home Fire’ album.
There’s a youtube band version which gives the air, but the solo version, with bodhran makes the song.Hopefully, it can be found as its witty and has a brilliant percussion drive.
Terrific to read such fab feedback after last night’s gig.
Thank you for the many years of absolute joy listening to your music. I have managed to see you twice only in London and Tullow. Unfortunately no longer able to travel. Am very proud that we share nationality.
Long may you continue in good health and bring joy to so many people
What an absolute joy and privilege to be at the gig last night, it was amazing. The audience, your songs both old and new, how lucky we all were to experience it. There is indeed healing in music, you have rekindled the flame for me after the passing of my loved one earlier this year. Thanks “H” for the gently tug along that road, the first step is over. I look forward to the next gig . Thank you. Jean D
It’s the morning after and I’m still Buzzing…. You beat me to it with reference to it been like Barrowlands,,,we were just commenting on that after the Gig. I heard Ole Ole been sang a few weeks ago in the Aviva after a high class performance, sang again last night after an equally high class performance. I think 1942 could become one of your most iconic songs, it just hits that spot.
Thanks for a wonderful performance and for all you do for us the listeners.
I think I heard a quiet mention for “The Contender”..I did consider momentarily..then remembered I’d played two Jimmy Mack Classics already…what a great audience last night…
