Some "Folk" songs just can't help but be pulled into the Celtic cultures. Steve Earle is an American folk musician and was visiting the Galway area around 2000. He made some friends there along with meeting a Galway girl on the "Long Walk" overlooking Galway Bay. He wanted to create an "Irish" tune and song, and with help from his friends, Sharon Shannon and Friends, they created a tune that became so popular that it quickly became a national standard and is now "made public with credits given." Our KelticDead Music Group (Earnie Taft, Linda King, and myself) sang and played the song using live instruments typically used by Celtic music groups. As for the girl that Steve Earle met, she remains anonymous, but they are still good friends.
