Weddings and Courtships
Traditional Irish Songs and Lyrics
From time immemorial, the Irish have always loved song and dance. Every village had a tavern or two for the folk to congregate and enjoy the evening. Locals would bring along the flute and drum, the fiddle and harp, to play music for each other until the wee hours of the morning. Any Irish courtship should include large helpings of music and fun!
The most beautiful music of all is the music of what happens.
