Raglan Road is a traditional Irish song that was originally a poem by Patrick Kavanagh which was set to the celtic tune The Dawning of the Day (Fáinne Geal an Lae). This waltz-style arrangement in 3/4 time features mandolin, acoustic guitar, banjo, tin whistle (penny whistle, Irish flute), fiddle (violin), accordion, upright bass, drums and shaker. The arrangement and instrumentation of this song give it the feel and sound of something you’d hear late night at a pub in Ireland. This song is perfect for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday!
This song is dedicated to my wife, whose beauty, Irish heritage and love of St. Patrick’s Day inspired me to arrange and produce this song.
The download includes both a high quality MP3 and a WAV file.
