Road to Athens, The
The wise man of traditional Irish music, Paddy O'Brien from County Offaly, composed this tune and graciously recorded it for me for inclusion in this collection. The Athens mentioned in the title is in southeastern Ohio, along the Hocking River. Athens is home to the University of Ohio. Paddy has fond memories of visiting Athens. Perhaps when he writes his autobiography he will reveal to us what went on down that road.
