Away in a Manger (original version)

The world-famous tune for Away in a Manger was written by Ulster-born William James Kirkpatrick. However, we prefer the original tune, written by James Murray in 1885 (the Louvin Brothers recorded it to this tune in May 1961). This is another "Scullery Table Demo" recording, of the original tune being picked out very simply on an old guitar. We're footering with new material at the minute, and might well upload some here when they're ready. If you like this you can download an MP3 file by clicking on the black arrow.
