September 25/365 Songs 18

At every show’s end, the three Jenny’s leave their microphones and walk to the front of the stage; sometimes they even climb down to stand with the audience. Then they sing “The Parting Glass,” to me the most lovely, heart-breaking Irish benediction ever. Three times I’ve witnessed the total silence of the audience as their sweet harmony filled the theater.

NOTE: In case you haven’t heard of The Wailin’ Jennys, shame on you! Go do something about it!

    • So glad you like them! The Jennys are yet another reason (in a very long list) that I am thankful our northern neighbors! I was torn between this song, and “Arlington”…a wonderful wintery song.


  1. I heart them! Enough to have CDs! I have seen them live, so you can pat me on the back. (And the venue of your clip? Been there often enough too, given that it’s about 2 hours away from me…)
