jeffp Shameless Promotion: Oh Boy, Danny (2) Shameless Promotion: Oh Boy, Danny 03 Mar 10

Back about 9 years ago, my friend Peter Benson and I wrote a parody of Danny Boy and I posted it on Aine's Mudcat Songbook. Four or five years later, a Canadian duo called Brown Ale discovered it and started performing it. They are now recording it and posted a YouTube video to promote it. They asked me to announce it on Mudcat for them.

I want to thank Max for hosting this place and Aine for hosting the songbood, both of which enabled a couple of songwriters in Maryland to be discovered in Toronto. It's an amazing world.

Here is the announcement which they emailed to me:

Hi all,

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, here's one for you:

Words are by Peter Benson and Jeff Porterfield.

The song will be on our next album, due out in June 2010.

For the DJs on this list, I would be happy to email you an MP3 of the song (with less reverb, added here for theatrical effect) for spinning during your St. Patrick's Day programming. I can be reached at


Glenn McFarlane
Brown Ale

I hope you like it.
