More about illustrating Irish folk songs

One of the most viewed pages since 1997 when I created a music web site about Irish folk music, is the page on the history and lyrics for The Gartan Mother’s Lullaby.

From the lyrics, “Sleep, O babe, for the red bee hums the silent twilight’s fall…”  It is always more fun when I can illustrate a subject I really care about, as I do Irish folk music.  I grew up with the songs, I have sung them since childhood, performed them as an adult, and they enrich my daily life, singing whether I am painting or doing laundry.
