"Peggy Gordon" is a track from the new Chieftain's album, "Voice of Ages," which links the Celtic traditionalists with singers and musicians including Bon Iver, The Civil Wars, The Low Anthem, Pistol Annies, the Punch Brothers and The Secret Sisters. Produced by head Chieftain Paddy Moloney and studio master T-Bone Burnett, the record is a gem and a perfect soundtrack to however you choose to mark St. Patrick's Day.
Smithsonian Folkways describes the song as a Canadian variant of a well-known British ballad called "Waly Waly."
