'Good luck with folk music.' - Vashti Bunyan Happy Old Man: This EP is first US release for the band, and was inspired by Irish postcards from 1907, which are describing the story of old Irish tune 'My Irish Rosie'. All 4 songs are analog-recordings with various instruments such as string quartet, oboe, clarinet, banjo, harmonium, and uilleann pipes. They are depainting a pure love story on the postcards that a man is delightfully singing, 'My Irish Rosie, come out love and spoon'...
