St. Patrick's Day Weekend Music

Today, we want to share two traditional Irish folk songs to mark St. Patrick's Day: a lyrical reel, "The Morning Dew," performed by The Chieftains, and the stirring "Brennan on the Moor," performed by The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem. (The latter is about William "Willie" Brennan, a Robin Hood- type highwayman in the late 18th and early 19th centuries in our ancestral County Cork.) Of Irish descent or not, we wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day. Erin go Bragh!
