Graham Irwin: My music

Here is a selection of videos of some of my music (latest additions first). My musical taste is mostly British and Irish folk, both traditional and contemporary. I shall be adding a new video each week.

The Shepherds' Song - a traditional English folk song (seems to be more about drinking than sheep!) (2:44)

Lavender's Blue - a traditional English folk song and nursery rhyme (with a special cameo appearance by Stevie Mouse) (2:12)

The Farmer's Boy - a traditional English folk song, very popular in days of yore (3:02)

The Drover's Dream - a traditional Australian folk song (2:11)

Ranter's Wharf - a contemporary folk song by John Conolly, based on the traditional belief that the souls of drowned seamen are transmuted into seagulls (3:49)

The Tailor's Breeches - a traditional English folk song (3:15)

Peggy Gordon - a traditional folk song from Canada (4:11)

Red And Gold - a contemporary folk song by Ralph McTell, telling the story of one battle in the English Civil War (7:01)

Sweet Nightingale - a traditional folk song from Cornwall, probably 17th century and translated from the ancient Cornish language (3:02)

The Boar's Head Carol - a medieval English Christmas carol (2:03)
