That Irish Kid


That Irish Kid is Steve Jones' latest solo release. The general theme is about emigration from Ireland because of the potato famine to a new home in the American west and some things that may have happened." It includes three of Steve's original songs, two cover songs and several Irish traditional songs that fit the theme. Steve's originals are: That Irish Kid / Danny Boy (a poem that goes to the chorus of Danny Boy), Niña, and The Callin' of the Pipes.

Songs Include:

Carrickfergus (Intro) * The Galway Shawl * That Irish Kid / Danny Boy * Fields of Athenry * Moreton Bay * No Irish Need Apply * Niña * The Risin' of the Moon * The Reason I Left Mullingar * Oh, Danny Boy * Callin' of the Pipes * Carrickfergus

      Steve Jones…has gone solo!! Only for this one, he hastens to tell us! But with this one he becomes the latest Western artist to stitch using those strong Irish Cowboy threads, and the result is a heap o'music!
      Here we find lilting ballads, spritely jigs and a couple of deceptively uptempo tracks dealing with ugly social underpinnings…such as signs bearing the dread letters "NINA" (No Irish Need Apply)…and the confusion that ensues when our young Irish friend encounters the Mexican lassie called "Niña!"
      The CD is a mix of new originals, appropriate previously released but newly recorded…tracks and some auld-ies but goodies! Five additional musicians create with Jones a suitable canvas on which to paint the green.
