The maid on the shore



 Genre: Celtic

Get Flash to see this player.

A classic Celtic ballad, starting as a weepy sentimental thing about a fair girl on the shore and the burning passion of a young captain. But the maid turns out to be quite surprising...

Hey! Welcome to Macjams... what a nice performance, well recorded, twisty lyrics... I think you'll enjoy it here, and I think others here will really like your style as well. I look forward to more of your music... and you may meet up with some Macjammers soon on your tours!

Welcome to MacJams
Aha, this is a song I know and love well, though I haven't got round to recording it myself yet. Nice rich trad backing you've put with it. You certainly sound more Irish than Belgian!

I look forward to hearing more of your stuff.

wonderful song...
very nicely sung, with truly wonderful arrangement. love the melody of the traverse flute and have to say all the sound of the tune is very full, rich and intense. the piano (and i noticed it at the end of the song) sounds completely like waves of the ocean washing the shore. a wonderful song. very well done guys :)

If you ever tour Northern England I'll be sure to come and listen.
