Sorry I Am is another gem from Michael J. Kennedy. Before launching into this jig, Michael would always sing, “Sorry I am for what I have done, sorry I am for what I have done, sorry I am for what I have done, to marry the father instead of the son.”
John Joe Lynch was a concertina and fiddle player from the townland of Clogher, three miles from Kilfenora in County Clare, and this jig bears his name. He did not compose the tune, but he loved to play it on the concertina and it has always been associated with him.
Grey wrote the jig Canoe in the Clouds. The title refers to a dreamlike fantasy, and also alludes to the Québecois folktale La Chasse Galerie.Sorry I Am (for What I Have Done, to Marry the Father Instead of the Son)/John Joe Lynch/Canoe in the Clouds
