Whiskey in the Jar – Thin Lizzy

Prev Next

This song began its life several centuries ago as part of the rich tapestry that it is native Irish folklore. Having been interpreted many times since the dawn of recorded music by musicians of all calibres and creeds (well, mostly Celtic Irish), this is the version that sits the most comfortably with me. Though the Dubliners version may stay true to the folk themes upon which the song was crafted and Metallica’s forever be a party classic- Thin Lizzy added the character needed to keep the ditty relevant at the time.
