Knacker’s Yard has just completed a second recording! This demo features six songs including “Many Young Men of Twenty Said Good-Bye” written in 1946 by the Irish playwright John B. Keane,  the Scottish traditional border ballad “The Raggle Taggle Gypsy,”  and two traditional Irish reels; “The Swallow-tail” and the “High Reel.”

We’re also very pleased to announce that three original tunes will also be included. “The Milton St. Mine Disaster,” “They’re Happy That You’re Gone,” and two instrumentals (played as one, which is generally the case) entitled “The Sooke River Reel,” and the “Leechtown Reel.”

The recording will be released on our site, as well as on CD.

Knacker’s Yard will be performing at the Irish Times pub, 1200 Government St., from 8:30pm-Midnight, Wednesday, November 5th.
The band will be performing three sets of traditional Scottish, English, and Irish songs.
