This song has a very special meaning to us. At our wedding we not only did a first dance but we did a first performance as a newly married couple. We performed “The Parting Glass.” The version we played at our wedding is slightly different than this one but we’ve had more time to flush out the arrangement and get the song exactly where we want it. The song is originally a traditional Scottish tune but it is widely popular in Ireland (which is where we spent out honeymoon). The melody to this song is hopeful yet haunting at the same time.
