reconcilliation

I would dearly love the words to this song, I'm afraid I don't know who sang it or anything about it other than the words "sweet reconcilliation" and something about autumn winds or leaves. The chorus contains a lot of tooraloora's too....thanks (optomistically) in advance

Angie The song is by Ron Kavana and you must be have second sense I've just (within a minute or two) tried to do a search for the song it is just called 'Reconcilliation' so if anyone out there can direct both of us to the words we'll live happily ever after. Jim

Well make youself even happier by following these simple instructions:

1) Follow the link Ian C gives above

2) In that thread, move down to the post by The Shambles

3) Follow the link Ron Kavana's songs

Seriously, you are very unlikely to be disappointed in that article/interview.

And if ever you get the chance to see Ron live - take it . . . He is a wonderful performer, including his tales. He most certainly has the Irish "gift of the gab . . " - but without the excess of sentimentality which sometimes goes with that.

However, Tommas Lynch's performance of the song on "The Crux of the Catalogue" is still the best I've heard . . that CD would certainly feature in my "all time 10 greatest folk recordings". In the context of this particular thread, the CD includes a trilogy of songs which provide (succeessfully, IMO) "the history of 'the troubles'".

Hey you all! Hey Angie! Have you ever heard "reconciliation" sung by John Wright? You're melting away and you will forget any other singers... Greetings from Germany Claudia caledonia.fuchs@web.de

for those interested, last time I was in London, Ron was playing regular wednesday night gigs at the Swan in Stockwell.

Damn fine Mandola player too. (or bouzouki or whatever it was)

George H, nice to see Tomas Lynch get a thumbs-up. He is an amazing performer, whether as singer, guitarist, or Uillean pipist. His accompaniment to "Kilbowie Hill", (tune "The Dawning of the Day" like in "Raglan Road") is one of the few pieces of guitar playing which makes me seethe and mutter "how the f*** does he do that?"
