Fields of Athenry




A tragic Irish love song based on a true story where a family is split when the husband is caught stealing corn from the Government to feed his starving family. He was jailed then shipped off to Australia. If it wasn’t sad enough, the corn which he stole was maize which at that time, they didn’t know how to prepare and eat… so useless. The song was written in the mid 1960s by Pete St John and is incredibly popular. It was adopted by the Glasgow Celtic football supporters and the Irish National Team as their song.


I play the 6-string baritone guitar as the foundation, you can really hear it’s depth and round bass tones. For the solo I played the melody on my low D carbony whistle and a harmony on a standard D whistle. I really like how that turned out.


Instruments: 6-string baritone, low D & D whistles, vocals
