Star of the County Down
- traditional -

…to be young, foolish and have your eyes on a girl with nut-brown hair. Of course, "better to be lucky than good," "keep your eyes to yourself" and as Dad always said, "live a quiet and peaceable life."

Black Rogue
- traditional -

Nice thing about a good jig… they fit in anywhere. We thought this was a good spot!

Hills of Connemarra
- traditional -

One of our favorite bands to hear and see is Gaelic Storm. In a true, rogue fashion, we borrowed this song from them. If it wasn’t for having a female in the group, the band would’ve been called "The Excise Men."

I'll Tell Me Ma
- traditional -

Some things and sometimes it’s best NOT to tell your Ma! Greg obviously lacked sufficient parental supervision!

Sally Garden
- traditional -

Well, here’s another one of those smitten, Irish love songs. How is it that Irish women all have little white feet? It must be genetic. Gordy is the founder of the little known group "Dads for not-so-Irish Daughters."

Windsong
- music and lyrics by D. Brown -

This is what happens when you have the afternoon with no kids around. You can actually have a thought, or a song. Just thought I’d put into music the idea that, similar to the wind, the Spirit can’t be seen or held, but it’s all around us.

Mairi's Wedding
- traditional -

An interesting wedding song and toast! Trivia question… what’s "plenty bonny bairns as weel"?

(the answer… lots of babies)

You're My Thing
- music and lyrics by D. Brown -

See, it is all about you, Robin. This is what happens when she leaves you at home with 3 kids for a few hours. Music is a wonderful escape…

Come to the Hills
- traditional -

We can’t wait to experience these hills… maybe someday soon…

Cockles and Mussels
- traditional/additional lyrics by G. Peterson -

If you are trying to find the extra verses to this song, stop looking! Greg was inspired one day to give poor Molly Malone more of a life before she died.

Humors of Bally de Hob
- traditional -

See, these jigs just fit in anywhere!

Uncivilized World
- music and lyrics by D. Brown -

Ok, Rosa. Truth be told, I was born by a lake, not the sea. Actually, I was born in a hospital 6th floor, overlooking the Mississippi River. It really doesn't matter. It's just a song! Were you this way with Mark's writing?

Evening
- music by D. Brown/G. Peterson -

Poetic reading of William Blake's "To the Evening Star" by Maeve O'Mara.
