A rarely heard, full traditional version of Skibbereen, focussing on a conversion between a young son and his father.
Often noted as The grandaddy of all famine songs, actually written shortly after the famine era. This song focuses on the village of Skibbereen, which is well documented in Irish history. Starvation, Eviction, Death, Rebellion and passing the torch to the next generation are illustrated here. Recorded at the Irish Roots Cafe as sung by Mike O'Laughlin. also available at: cdbaby.com/cd/michaelcolaughlin
