If you’re going to sing, sing an Irish song. Preferably a new one, ’cause we’re all past sick of the Paddywhackery at this point, now.

Throw this on if you need a start: twenty-one tracks from the current generation of Irish independent artists, across a multitude of genres and traditions, plus a bonus track with the Bodger seal of approval.

    “Preferably a new one” –
    Only if it’s better I’d say, otherwise it’s change for change sake.
