We Were Young and It Was Morning – Part 2 by Seamus Maoilenaigh

My good friend Seamus Maoilenaigh recorded his own beautiful version of We Were Young and It Was Part – 2.

He wrote a little bit about it:

I think that we have quite different voices so for me to have recorded a similar version would not have worked. Besides, I very rarely cover other people’s songs and definitely not in the same style as most often their version is going to be better than mine so I feel it is better to at least try and reinterpret it or look at in a different direction. I initially played about with the structure of the song as I was looking for a style which felt more comfortable to my way of playing. I also thought the words of the song lent itself to an introspective and perhaps slightly more downbeat style of singing. I really love the sound of a mandolin and it seemed an ideal song to experiment with a mandolin accompaniment as an alternative to the original which had two vocal parts.

Have a listen below.
