Saint Paddy’s Music Bonus
March 17, 2012
If you’re going to keep a green planet, and you’re having trouble remembering why, warm up your coffee, take a breath and sink into this one. Dick Gaughan, Emmylou Harris, The McGarrigles, Rufus Wainwright, Alley Bain and Jerry Douglas.
It’s spring, no matter what the gyrations of the atmosphere, its the only spring we’ve got – so get out there and breath the moist air in – and mix it with this music in your chest.
Then, get back to work defending it with Dick Gaughan’s “Worker’s Song” (below the fold) in your belly.
OK, Gaughan’s a Scot – but dammit so am I, and nothing that I’ve heard expresses the the spirit of trampled earth and trampled people better than this one.
