O'Boyle Songs of emigration (44) Songs of emmigration 06 Mar 99


I was looking over the St Patrick's Favorites thread started a year ago by Alison, and was struck by Rich and Dee's entry about Thousands are Sailing, which although it may not go over too well on St Patrick's, I have played it with success in more quiet (and musician friendly) pubs. I have always thought that song of emmigration are the saddest Irish songs, and have written a few myself. I would like to hear about other's favorite songs of emmigration. I have been playing "The Reason I Left Mullingar" lately and it is my new favorite probably because it hits close to home. I would like to hear other's thoughts on this.
