Only Our Rivers Run Free By Charlie McCoy

Here’s a lovely version of an Irish favorite, Only Our Rivers Run Free. It is from the album, Celtic Dreams By Charlie McCoy, and features Donegal’s Marian Bradfield on vocals with Charlie on harmonica. Charlie is in the Nashville Music Hall of Fame. He has recorded with everyone from Elvis through Loretta Lynn and…..well, he has recorded with everyone. Period, full stop. Arguably the most well known and respected harmonica player in the world for decades. Marian has several albums to her credit and is a known and admired singer/songwriter in Ireland and America. A fitting classic for the St. Patrick season and, this year especially, the anniversary of the 1916 Rising.
