We offer up Dirty Old Town as we turn greener in our approach to St. Paddy’s 2023. Catch The Shiners live at The Glengarrian in Cornwall on March 17th from 5 to 9 PM. We recorded Dirty Old Town several years ago on a cold wintery day whilst hanging out at our friend Glenn Forrester’s house. We called Glenn up and said, how ’bout , if you’re not busy, we stop by and play some tunes. We promised food, drink and some laughs. We showed up armed with instruments, beer and a 50 pound bag of potatoes (…watch for Eric coming in the house with the potatoes!). We recorded two songs on that cold February afternoon, Ewan MacColl’s ‘Dirty Old Town’ and Neil Young’s ‘Heart of Gold’. Our buddy Dale Roy shot some video and helped us with the beer. Many folks recognize Dirty Old Town as a song by The Pogues, which is certainly a familiar version to us. Here’s to having fun with friends on cold winter days. Happy St. Pat’s everyone.
