Back about 9 years ago, my friend Peter Benson and I wrote a parody of Danny Boy and I posted it on Aine's Mudcat Songbook. Four or five years later, a Canadian duo called Brown Ale discovered it and started performing it. They are now recording it and posted a YouTube video to promote it. They asked me to announce it on Mudcat for them.
I want to thank Max for hosting this place and Aine for hosting the songbood, both of which enabled a couple of songwriters in Maryland to be discovered in Toronto. It's an amazing world.
Here is the announcement which they emailed to me:
--- Brown Ale Music
Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, here's one for you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TE_okZXz-w0.
Words are by Peter Benson and Jeff Porterfield.
The song will be on our next album, due out in June 2010.
For the DJs on this list, I would be happy to email you an MP3 of the song (with less reverb, added here for theatrical effect) for spinning during your St. Patrick's Day programming. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you like it.
