I wanted to record a version of this lovely traditional East Coast Canada / USA tune. It's been done many times, in different ways, with variations on the lyrics. I've leaned on Solas's and Stan Rogers's versions, and added a verse of my own…

Pat Bondi here at Alonetone does a great and quite different version of this folk song entitled Maiden on the Shore, so I dug into my demo archives and found this version that I recorded long ago. Long before the Internet, I used to listen…

I'll Tell Me Ma is a folk song in the Irish tradition. I recorded it with acoustic instruments, multiple vocal tracks, and spoons for the main percussion, to give it that kitchen party feel! I did it in the key of C. Not exactly normal, but…
