SSA Blogathon Songathon: Whiskey in the Jar

Long-time Cromrade Riptide (for reasons I cannot fathom) wanted to hear me cover Thin Lizzy’s cover of “Whiskey in the Jar”. I decided to spare you my horribly-offensive Irish accent.

Compare this to the original here.

    Whiskey in the Jar is one of my favorite “folk” songs. The version I’m familiar with is Grisman/Garcia (on Shady Grove). I honestly had no idea that Thin Lizzie had covered this one, much less that they were famous for it.
    You do a good job covering it solo.

    I wanted to see how it sounded on acoustic guitar. That was really great! Thank you!
