First let me say, this isn't an Irish or Scottish song, it's actually Stephen Foster, but it has been sung my many Celtic artists. This particular version is by our friend Beth Patterson of New Orleans.
We first met Beth at CelticFest Mississippi, when she was pulling double duty, playing with both Legacy and the Poor Clares. Beth is a talented songwriter, bouzouki player and has a wicked, tongue-in-cheek sense of humor. Performing solo or with her group Kalafka, you can expect a variety of musical influences, from the Celtic to the Middle East with some Cajun spice thrown in for good measure.
Don't forget to go see Jimmy Crowley at the Celtic Crossing on Saturday, Nov. 21!
