Hello Saturday! Here is the second post in my new blog series “Song Saturday”, today’s song is “Black Velvet Band” and I’m going to share a few different version of this great Irish song! The first is by Colm Keegan of Celtic Thunder. I saw this song live in March 2015 when my Grandma and I went and saw Celtic Thunder in Winnipeg, and while I had heard the song before. I became absolutely obsessed with it! There was only one catch – Celtic Thunder hadn’t recorded it for an album, it was only a song at the time that Colm was performing and there was no version to be bought anywhere. Luckily for me, most Celtic bands have a base of songs that they all seem to sing, many old and traditional Celtic songs that all of them can sing (probably the novelty of them) and I was able to find quite a few other versions to tide me over until Celtic Thunder released their next album. So below you will find four versions of this great Irish song, so enjoy!
I absolutely LOVE Celtic music (I can thank my Scottish roots for that)! Which one is your favourite Celtic song? Let me know in the comments!
