Mouth Music

Mouth music, or singing styles where the tune takes precedence over the words, comes in plenty of different forms. On the Irish traditional scene, you can catch a bit of lilting, which eschews with words altogether. Here, Séamus Brogan lilts "The Mason's Apron." This is a reel people tend to have way too much fun with anyway; an indefinite number of variations can be included, and Mr. Brogan is not stingy with them.
