Sharon Shannon - The best of - The galway girl CD

Following the huge demand for 'The Galway Girl' single since the airing of the fantastic Magners advert across all TV and Radio channels, IRL is now making the track available on a new Sharon Shannon Best of album. This 13 track album includes a selection of classic Sharon Shannon favourites along with both versions of the hit single, The Galway Girl - the original version featuring Steve Earle and the newly recorded studio version with Mundy. Special guests also featured on the album include: Damien Dempsey, Dessie O'Halloran, Kirsty MacColl, Michael McGoldrick, Jackson Browne and Mike Scott of The Waterboys. The title track was written by Steve Earle while he was spending some time living in Galway writing a book. It was first recorded by Earle and Shannon in 1999 for Shannon's hugely successful 'Diamond Mountain Sessions' album. The song has been gaining in popularity ever since, reflected earlier this year when it won the most downloaded single for 2007 at the Irish Meteor Awards. Mundy has been performing the song at Sharon Shannon Big Band shows across the country in recent times and had the opportunity to perform it with Steve Earle at last year's Cambridge Folk Festival much to the festival goers delight.
