The High Kings: Close Harmony

The High Kings is one of the Irish groups that comes across my Pandora station regularly. Their shtick is doing traditional Irish songs in close harmony, and I always notice close harmony because Jane loves it dearly. I linked to their version of “The Leaving of Liverpool” a while back; today I want to point out two quieter songs that I very much like.

The first is “Will Ye Go Lassie Go”, also known as “Wild Mountain Thyme”; this is a tune I’m learning to play on the whistle.

The second is “Red is the Rose”, which I just like to listen to. I believe the tune is more or less “Loch Lomond”, but it sounds rather different to my ear.
