There’s been a bit of a new lease of life for “Till The Docklands Drown” lately.
Earlier this week actress and musician Tara Lee, who performed the song in the award-winning movie A Date for Mad Mary, released her own full version of the song, which is really lovely. The band on the recording were Clive Barnes on pedal steel, Neil Conlan (who also engineered) on bass and SJ on acoustic guitar.

Also this week, Irish website Joe.ie made Kern’s own version of “Docklands” their song of day and promoted it with a lovely post. Check it out here: https://www.joe.ie/music/joes-song-day-573-kern-till-docklands-drown-619199
