Afro-Celtic-Hillbilly music. Songs of drinking and debauchery.
NOTES
Over the past twenty years, Dead Irish Blues has built up a repertoire of music, mostly derived from the Irish, Appalachian Old-Time, Jug Band, Blues, Zydeco, and Texas Swing traditions. Bawdy, or risqué material can be found in all of these traditions. We have found that, from time to time, these bawdy songs can be useful in getting the attention of a crowd in a pub.

Gone

by Dead Irish Blues

Released 2015
Released 2015
This song was written in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I lived for many years in Baton Rouge, LA and have friends from New Orleans, several of whom suffered directly, or indirectly, from that storm. The lyrics could apply to most any flood.
NOTES
Dead Irish Blues performs a wide range of musical styles, many are traditional/public domain songs, but some are originals. This is an original, arranged in a blues style, documenting the impacts of Hurricane Katrina. However, the lyrics are vague enough to apply to those impacted by floods in other locations. Having lived in Johnstown, PA (Flood City) for many years, we've known many people impacted by devastating floods.
