- Whiskey In The Jar, Irish traditional video
- Time to Switch to Whiskey, Corb Lund Band (2009) video
There are many version of Red is the Rose on YouTube. While most are in D, I like the one above because it’s in C, which is a bit better suited to the ukulele.
There are also many different lyrics for Whiskey in the Jar. The one on here match the version by The Irish Rovers.
Don’t forget! Next month we have to move back a week to April 11. It’s also our third anniversary and your chance to perform for the rest of the group!
