The rousing pentatonic tune of this Irish folksong comes to dramatic life in this stunning arrangement, where the text tells of the rigors of the daily lives of the hard-working miners. Perform this with piano and doumbek, or add some or all of the optional instruments for a full-fledged Irish reel.
