Below is my contribution for today's letter of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. For more information about the challenge please visit their website http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com. If this is your first visit here from the challenge, I'm embroidering song lyrics for each letter. I'm also participating over at The Occasional Adventures of a Hermit, feel free to check that out too.
Just like with A, it didn't take me long to settle on "Black Velvet Band" for my B song. My favorite version that I've ever heard was the Brobdingnagian Bards.
Not happy with this embroidery. It looks like I was drunk when I drew the ribbon border. I wasn't; I was just trying to make it not uniform. It's not uniform for sure. Definitely want to redo this one.
Song: Black Velvet Band
Singer: Brobdingnagian Bards
Album: The Holy Grail of Irish Drinking Songs
Writer: Traditional song
I couldn't find the Brobdingnagian Bards' version on YouTube but I found this version by The High Kings.
