Irish Music

shambar02

Irish music is a rich, lively and historically significant art form, winding its way from pre-Baroque compositions to Celtic dance songs to modern day rockers like U2 and the Coors. The music that comes from Ireland has a timeless quality that transcends nationality, history and age.

St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect time to enjoy some Irish music. Many cities host free concerts and your local pub is also a great place to discover some live music. Another option is to check out the bands playing in your hometown St. Patty’s parade.

Popular Irish Songs

 

An Irish Lullaby

Over in Killarney Many years ago,
Me Mither sang a song to me
In tones so sweet and low.
Just a simple little ditty,
In her good ould Irish way,
And l’d give the world if she could sing
That song to me this day.
Chorus:
“Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, hush now, don’t you cry!
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, that’s an Irish lullaby.”
Oft in dreams I wander
To that cot again,
I feel her arms a-huggin’ me
As when she held me then.
And I hear her voice a -hummin’
To me as in days of yore,
When she used to rock me fast asleep
Outside the cabin door.
