Good Shepherd with Maydo Kay – Gently Johnny

A shortened version of the old folk song “Gently Jonny, My Jingalo” aka “The Fair Made of WIckham”, I never even heard this song until I finally got the extended version of the film in 2006.

Coming to me nearly 15 years later than the rest of the soundtrack makes this song feel really special and it seems perverse that it was cut in the first place.

This was quite an easy one to figure out as I’d been listening to the debut album from Good Shepherd a lot in 2021. It’s called “Let’s See What The East Wind Brings” and is out on Irish label Rusted Rail.

I think you can see from the song above how I made the connection. I wanted someone who could make it even mellower without losing any of its beauty. Mission accomplished!
