Love these two songs but, because each was so short on its own, I was wondering for a while how I could put them up as backing tracks. So I eventually decided to put them together as a medley! You can hear a demo here:
Folk Medley (The Hills Of Connemara & Rare Old Mountain Dew) | Backing Track

Love the Irish Rovers!
Another backing track we got a lot of requests for is Wagon Wheel by Nathan Carter. The original version by Old Crow Medicine was great but Nathan has taken it to another level with his own inimitable style.

For comparison, the live performance in question was in Castlebar a couple of years back and you can check it out here:
Also, check out this great Johnny Cash country guitar tutorial that was a big help for the backing track:
This is my first blog entry. The purpose of this blog is to discuss backing tracks added to the Emerald Tracks website and news related to the Irish music scene.
