It would be near
impossible to express love more beautifully or more movingly than Burns’ second and third stanzas. Read them out loud and slowly. Better still sing them. This
version with Eddi Reader and Alan Kelly is just gorgeous. What a stunning voice
she has, and his playing is exquisite.
I went to see
them and the rest of the band some months back. They put on a fantastic show, one of
the most enjoyable gigs I’ve ever been to. So, what I'm saying is, if you get the chance........................Of course, I should point out that
Alan Kelly is a Roscommon man.
