‘The Parting Glass’ collaboration

Earlier this year, Mark Bennett posted an a capella vocal on SoundCloud and invited anyone and everyone to make a backing track for it, and post the results. And many results came in – some of them a bit iffy but a lot of them were absolutely stunning renditions of the traditional folk song (called ‘The Parting Glass’).

I discovered this a little late, but got to it and here’s my version. As might be expected, I went for the synthesizer angle bigtime 🙂

Other versions abound, for example by Matham Wilsoned, Folderol, Drew, and MLucas. This one by Alexia Fredsteres I found particularly inventive.

All great stuff!
