Graham Irwin: My music

Here is a selection of videos of some of my music (latest additions first). My musical taste is mostly, but not exclusively, British and Irish folk, both traditional and contemporary. I have taken inspiration from Steeleye Span, John Kirkpatrick, Ian Campbell, John Conolly, Shirley Collins, The Albion Band, Fairport Convention, Strawhead, Martin Carthy and many others. I shall be adding a new video each week.

More recently I have been creating music tracks for meditation, relaxation, massage, yoga and therapy, as well as creating electronic pieces. These are included here, too.

God Speed The Plough - a traditional British folk song, tune by Eric Winter; also known as The Farmer's Toast or The Jolly Farmer (5:07)

The Golden Vanity - a story of betrayal; one of several versions of the song. Sorry, but it doesn't have a happy ending :( (4:26)

Banks Of The Bann - a traditional Irish folk song (3:10)

Scarborough Fair - a well-known traditional English folk song (3:01)

The Wild Rover - a traditional Irish drinking song (3:12)

New York Girls - a traditional capstan shanty, origin uncertain (3:26)

Adieu Sweet Lovely Nancy - a traditional British folk song probably from the 18th century (3:37)
