scenery and through giving you a taste of what Irish song, dance,
music, or as
we say in Ireland, 'Irish Craic', is all about. We hope you enjoy this
DVD as much

C.D. A Jig, A Jog and A Magic
Dog. This album contains thirteen songs of music,
comedy and song. Eleven of the tracks are original, They range from
'The generations To come' a historical song about Ireland from 1798 to
today, 'The L and I Call My Own' and 'Won't You Sail Across The Sea To
Ireland', sentimental songs about Ireland , to 'Rover' , 'The Joggin
Song', ' The Garda Car' and 'Free - On The House', lively and comical
songs. However the two most popular items on this album are songs
called 'Young Arthur' and 'The Fly'. The latter is a comedy song about
a fly that goes beserk! and is one of the most popular songs we do
whenever The Irish Weavers go on tour in The United States. 'Young
Arthur', an original song by The Irish Weavers, is an anti- war song
written specifically for the people of Northern Ireland. At live
performances the song is dedicated to the people of Northern Ireland
and to similar people in similar situations in simil ar countries such
as Bosnia, Ruanda and Russia with the hope that in time, like in
Ireland there may be peace in these countries aswell in the near
future. It has a beautiful melody, with a beautiful arrangement
featuring the Uileann Pipes (traditional Irish pipes) and very simple
lyrics with a strong message. It's a gentle song sung by a son at the
grave side of his father. They are both soldiers and his son reflects
on both their lives. The message of the song is wrapped up by saying
that 'I don't think that there's anyone out there who really wants to
pick up a gun and shoot anyone but sometimes it's a thing that people
feel they have to do in desperation.The album contains one all Irish
track called 'Ag Teacht Abhaile' (Coming Home) and of course there are
three traditional music tracks for the Traditional music lovers.
Traditional Irish timber flute, bodhran (Irish Drum), fiddle i.e. violin, uileann pipes (traditional Irish 'elbow' pipes), tin whistle, Irish two row button accordian, piano accordian, guitar, mandolin and spoons.
