The Baileys

The Baileys

From the heart of Ireland comes a new collection of Irish folk songs, performed by two preeminent artists in the genre – Michael Banahan and Anthony McDermott.  The two friends comprise The Baileys, and A SONG FOR IRELAND is their vital 20-track collection that illustrates the history and beauty of their beloved country.

From the timeless ballad “Fiddler’s Green” and the lilting “The Mountains of Mourne” (penned by the famous Percy French) to the pithy and humorous “Colcannon,” A SONG FOR IRELAND is an aural patchwork of all that is great about the Emerald Isle.  It also includes The Bailey’s version of Ireland’s most-sung sports anthem, “The Fields of Athenry” – as more than 80,000 people at a football game will passionately sing this song, it’s akin to “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” in America (albeit, much less simple).
