Video Premiere: The Orphan Brigade “Captain’s Song (Sorley Boy)”

This wonderful and atmospheric music is from the Orphan Brigade’s new album “To The Edge Of The World“, which is out now.  It was written on a boat in Antrim and Sorley Boy is an infamous chieftain from the 1500, though the song is as much about searching for direction.  John Prine guests and is on the video in animated form.  They’re on tour in October and you should go.
