- Shamrocks, Thistles & Silver Spurs

We titled this CD to reflect the Scots-Irish (Shamrocks and Thistles) influence on American folk (Silver Spurs). These are the favorites and singalongs that audiences tell us they love to hear the most. So, now folks can take the music home from our shows.

This music comes alive again everytime you sing it: with friends around the campfire, with family in the kitchen or when you sing to your baby, just as moms and dads everywhere still sing You Are My Sunshine for their kids and eachother. It's music that inspires a smile and heartfelt happiness.

We also including a few new folk originals, plus Mary Kay's new verse for You Are My Sunshine.

are songs I have not heard for many years.
I used to sing songs like these to my son when he was a baby
and this CD brings back fond memories!"

Folk Music CD Ramblin Irishman
Here we are ramblin' on the V&T Railroad in Virginia City, where Irish-Americans became the richest men in the world! After taking this picture, just as we stepped off the tracks and cleared all our gear, including instruments and photographic equipment, the V&T roared by! Shooting a CD cover can be risky business!

- Ramblin' Irishman

This CD is a classic! Some real gems here from the Celtic Tradition. Average Customer Review: *****

Ramblin' Irishman Includes Celtic tunes, ballads, bar songs, heartfelt ballads and historical music, as well! A little bit of everything Celtic, but with Gairin's own style and vocal harmonies like no other. Just as Gairin does the music in their shows, you'll hear lovely ballads next to "stompin' through the Scottish moor" music. That's why it's true that if you like Celtic music you will find something you love on Ramblin' Irishman!

A lot of the music came over on the boat from Ireland, Scotland and other Celtic lands. But, Gairin does it like no other with their unique vocal harmonies. Also, enjoy Tom's flair on Irish bouzouki, 6 & 12 string guitars and Mary Kay's charming accordion.

It's a variety CD that includes Celtic tunes, ballads, bar songs, heartfelt ballads and historical music, as well! A little bit of everything Celtic, but with our own style and vocal harmonies like no other.
