Cover Of Spancil Hill

This is my 1st video for this website, you can find videos of me on YouTube just click here . This my Cover Of Spancil Hill which is a well know irish song, It was written by Michal Considine who was born around 1850 near Spancil Hill, which lies between Ennis and Tulla in County Clare in Ireland.

Like millions of others, Considine was forced to leave his homeland because of the potato famine which devastated Ireland in the mid-nineteenth century. He went to Boston in 1870 but only stayed for a few years before moving to California. I grow up hearing this song almost every time I would go into bar’s where there would be some good sessions taking place.

I use to play the tune all the time and when I started to sing, it was one I had to learn. So I give this to you and please feel free to let me know what you think and sharing is caring, it is the 1st take because I think it is important for you to see that I can make some slip up’s as you go along but the most important to keep going.

I find when I record my self it can be very daunting to sing when you know that you are being recorded, If you mess up just keep going and look back on the video and find where you can make improvements and than start again, never give up try and try again.
