'In Dublin's Fair City' – cover of this traditional Irish song - also known as Molly Malone and Cockles and Mussels.
This was a song my Dad used to sing to me at bedtime. Rumour has it that our grandmother used to sing and possibly play in the pubs of Dublin. This is for my Irish ancestry and particularly for my Dad, Dennis, who was a lovely warm and very musical man.
Traditional Irish tune by James Yorkston, reharmonised and reimagined by Hilary Burt with Alex Eberhard taking the lead vocals.
