New York Girls

Posted by shanoah on December 20, 2009

Ah, well, if we’re going to do the whole American Irish in New York thing, we’d be remiss to leave out New York Girls. It’s been covered by a lot of groups, including the Kingston Trio and Steeleye Span. The version I chose to play here, though, is being played by Oysterband.

After all, not only is this a good version, the video is entertaining. It was shot in New York in 1989 featuring the New York Ukranian Community Polka Club with Oysterband.

I’m sure this is how some New Yorkers Christmas goes. And what would Christmas be without polka?
