Maranna McCloskey

I just found a live recording of Maranna with a bouzouki and a flute player. I don't know who they are, so if you can help it would be great.


Our Last Embrace

Lonely Irish Maid

Going To Mass Last Sunday

Frazer Island

At Last

Ade Edmondson & The Bad Shepherds play Stranglers

Wow, an old punk classic by the Stranglers played on bouzouki and fiddle. Now it has become a folk song. This is real rocking bouzouki

And here's another version, I think it's even better

And if you can't get enough here's The Talking Head's "Once in a lifetime"

And the Clash's "London Calling"

Brackagh Hill

Burkhardhelke plays a cover of Brackagh Hill by Andy Irvine on his greek Bouzouki. I like his version a lot, and I think it is interesting for all Andy Irvine Fans out there who like to play a version of that song too.

claughaun1 irish bouzouki player

Just discovered this man on youtube. He has posted more than 200 videos up to now. Many of them him playing one of his irish bouzoukis. He must have several of them.

Only our rivers run free on a Joe Foley special made zouk

The Gael on a Beard Zouk

Beth Patterson covers Iron Maiden

My friend Peter Hankiewicz gave me the hint to this fine video by Zouk Player Beth Patterson. Here she plays a cover of Iron Maiden's "Wasted Years". You can find some more videos of her on this blog.
