About this Episode

Billy Far Out - How sitting on a train with Andy Irvine at 13 years old can change your life forever.

The Andy Irvine song Corinn talks about is this one, I think: 'Billy Far Out'

We also talk about the song 'O'Donoghues' which is a bloody brilliant chronicling a time and place. When I listen to this it sort of tugs at something in me to do with the optimism of youth, and dreams of a future in music, and stuff like that. Fits pretty sweetly with Corinn's story of chatting with Andy on the train.

And a great interview, Andy Irvine talking to The Second Captains, my favorite sports podcast that ventures into other areas from time to time. From October 2018.
