Default new song about "our" lake

Two of my wife’s nephews are members of a band in Ireland called Hermitage Green. The summer before last, during a break in their tour of the US, we invited the band to stay for a few days at our house in West Alton. We took them out in the boat, went swimming in the rain and I told some stories about growing up on the lake. The band members thoroughly enjoyed their visit, to the extent that nephew Barry wrote a song about the experience; “Lake Winnipesaukee”. They recently recorded the song and will release it for general sale on June 5th. Attached are a press release and a link to the song.

If you like the song and know a local DJ or musician who might like to cover it, the band would appreciate the exposure. While you're at it, you might check out some of Hermitage’s Green other music: The Lion’s Share, Quicksand, Gibson, etc.

While they were swimming did you tell them about our favorite monster Winni?

Young Barry Murphy! I saw him play for Munster in Thomond Park a few times. Saw the band in Gerry Fla’s one night as well. Small world!

We've learned that WLKZ 104.9 FM in Wolfboro has a program on Sundays nights where they play local music. We've suggested that the band contact them. Hopefully they'll play "Lake Winnipeaukee"!
