Music-loving blog friend JES introduced me to Canadian folk trio The Wailin' Jennys and their haunting a capella rendition of the poignant Irish/Scots farewell song, The Parting Glass, a little over a year ago. I immediately responded with a post of my own on the song, but omitted this version. I confess I got just a little tearful when I was digging it out again yesterday. There have been a fair few 'parting glasses' this last week or so (and one or two cups of coffee too).
JES originally posted the girls' album recording of the song, but I discover they can also nail it live.
