This is turning out to be one of the favorite songs on my latest album titled Across The Water!
Irish Girl is a traditional tune of tender intimacy. The arrangement is sweet and simple but quite beautiful. Grand piano with Joseph Akins forms the underlying structure of the song. My Celtic whistle opens the melody on the first verse. Jennifer Curtis takes the second verse on violin. Cellist Nancy Green and harpist Anita Burroughs-Price add lovely textures and oboist Melanie Wilsden offers a haunting final verse.
I am extremely grateful for the photographs of Adrian Costigan that really make this video sing! You can see more of Adrian's marvelous images on Flickr.
