Dive into tradition: New folk songs in the Flexy Piano app!
First on the list is a beautiful Irish song that inspired songs like “Danny Boy” and “You Raise Me Up“. So if you’re looking to add an “Irish spirit” to your piano repertoire, this song might be the perfect place to start!
The author of the lyrics is Katherine Tynan Hinkson.
The Irish Rover
This upbeat song is our second offering!
The lyrics tell the story of a huge ship that had twenty-three masts, although some text versions even say twenty-seven masts! The stanzas describe the crew, cargoes and other interesting stories related to this unimaginably huge ship. Unfortunately, the story doesn’t have a good ending, because as it turns out, the narrator will be the only survivor of this ship…. but we don’t want to give everything away!
We encourage you to get acquainted with this tune, because it can be a challenge and exercise for the right hand, and as we know – proficiency on the keyboard is our goal to achieve, right? 🙂
The Water is Wide
The third place is occupied by a quiet and beautiful ballad that originated in Scotland.
Other titles for this song include “O Waly, Waly” or an even more simplified version, which is simply “Waly, Waly“.
Whiskey in the Jar
A traditional and very popular Irish song.
It lived to see numerous covers, which made the song more and more famous, until it became known all over the world.
A popular children’s song from Quebec. The song’s lyrics were written in French.
Interesting fact: The English song “If You Love Me” is based on the melody of “Alouette“.
