Today I’m reaching out across an increasingly unknown cyber world to bring you a song about the most lovely natural stuff in the world – the verdant fields of Ireland. It’s a land where the green imagination stretches as far as the eye can see, and the green heart of Irish love stretches across that!
Please welcome my new song that I’m so excited to share, Green Upon Green!
The story behind Green Upon Green
As a girl growing up in Manhattan, I would walk to school down cement sidewalks, a bandana on my head, dreaming of another land, a simpler land. I was also beginning to learn some Celtic tunes at school, which touched my heart because they sang of other times and places. The desire to sing beautiful Celtic folk music was planted in me like a seed, which would bloom years later as I took up singing in earnest, and found myself continually drawn to the music of Ireland where I had the opportunity to visit in 2010.
Green Upon Green was written and recorded in February 2019 when the world still held some semblance of normal outline. No longer to my eye! But this song helps me to reestablish the meeting of minds and hearts in one of the earth’s natural paradises, IRELAND.
I wrote the song with my producer Billy Smiley, and we recorded it with several of his amazing Nashville studio musicians. I hope it takes you there, where green meets green!
The song will also be released on two record compilations this month, through Bongo Boy Records, and also through Acoustic Rainbow which will take the song across the world!
I hope that you will enjoy the song and share it with friends as well. I’d love to hear what you think!
