Thread Name: The Bricklayer's Song
Subject: RE: The Bricklayer's Song
Yep, it is on the Furey's but they call it "Paddy and the Barrel" I believe. Barley Bree also have it on one of their tapes, but I will have to find it. I will check it and post the name. Great song. I have heard it performed many ways, but I think my favorite live performance was by a Dublin born Uillean Piper who now lives and performs in Chicago, and also pipes for The Trinity Dancers. His name is Pat Broaders and he does it in a sad sack voice that just kills me.
