I heard this Jimmie Driftwood song numerous times on folk radio years ago but never noted down who recorded it. My bandmates have just had a baby named Brendan, and I want to get them a recording of the song -- any leads?

(I looked it up in DigiTrad, which lists words [helpful] but has no recording info.)

Mick Moloney and Eugene O'Donnell recorded it on their "Uncommon Bonds" CD. It's on Green Linnet Records, #GLCD 1053. (I just happen to have it here with me, can you tell?) It's a great CD, with a number of excellent musicians, including Norman and Nancy Blake, Seamus Egan, Liz Carroll, and many others. Interestingly, they call it "St. Brendan's Fair Isle." I've met Mick at the Augusta Heritage Center in West Virginia, where he hosts Irish Week, and I can wholeheartedly recommend any of his CDs.

Barley Bree has also recorded the song, as did Jimmy Driftwood. It is on one of Barley Bree's Shanachie recordings. There are also quite a few references to St. Brendan on the web.

Here is another song about the voyage of St Brendan:

Brendan's Song
(words by Jane Cassidy, tune by Shaun Davey (from 'the Brendan Voyage' an orchestral suite)

Now as darkness fills my sail
Waves of time roll evermore
Is there no star to guide to guide my wandering
No midnight sun to find the shore?

Now I will set sail
I will give and hazard all
For I know it's only by journeying
I can find a peace within

Sail the seven seas
Journey seven years
Suffer seven waves
Till you find the sea of whales
Become a paradise of birds
And in that arctic sun
Gaze beyond the horizon

In retracing his pattern there
We find a way through our despair
Brendan's truth remains eternally
Survives the storm of the centuries.

Words published by Elmgrove Music, 1982
Song recorded by Jane Cassidy,"Waves of Time", Claddagh Records, 1982
^^
"The Brendan Voyage" recorded by Tara Record Co, 1980

I also have a recording of this song made by a group called Raglan Four who I think were from Carlow. Jon

The Wolfe Tones have also recorded a "Brendan", I think the one noted above as "Brendan's Fair Isle".

Thanks, all -- Mudcatters have never failed to help me in a quest for music, lyrics, recording or background.
