This one was colored last night while listening to a library borrow, “Mondo Celtic”, which has several Celtic songs done by several Celtic musicians. The song is called, “Bushes and Briars”, by Susan McKeown. I couldn’t find the version on the CD, but here is the song as found on youtube. Exquisite!
Update: ok after reading some comments at the youtube, I found this excellent blog post with not only the lyrics but some background history and other versions of it here.
