Banter II Songs and Tunes

A bit of Banter: 18- Ride On

Written by Jimmy McCarthy, noted Irish songwriter

a-muso-imageThere’s no fool like an old fool, they say, so what happens when a bunch of oul’  coots gather together to make music? The next 20 posts may enlighten you as to the question just posed and may also, perhaps,  enrage or entertain. Anything’s better than a yawn, I guess. These songs were the result of a few sessions around a table laden with alcoholic beverages of various kinds. Plonked in the centre of the table was a laptop with built-in mic that somehow survived the knocks and spillages that were part and parcel of the sessions. 

Song 18: Ride On– Written by Jimmy McCarthy, noted Irish songwriter, this song has been a favourite of the band since we first heard Christy Moore sing it. Although it is short, it is memorable and is often requested when we make one of our rideonsporadic appearances in public out here on the fringes of Western Sydney.
