Like all traditional music, Irish folk music has changed slowly. Most folk songs are less than two hundred years old. One measure of its age is the language used. Modern Irish songs are written in English and Irish. Most of the oldest songs and tunes are rural in origin and come from the older Irish language tradition. Modern songs and tunes often come from cities and towns, Gaeltacht and English-speaking Ireland.

Unaccompanied vocals are called sean nós ("in the old style") and are considered the ultimate expression of traditional singing. This is usually performed solo (very occasionally as a duet). Sean-nós singing is highly ornamented and the voice is placed towards the top of the range. A true sean-nós singer will vary the melody of every verse, but not to the point of interfering with the words, which are considered to have as much importance as the melody. To the first-time listener, accustomed to pop and classical singers, sean-nós often sounds more "Arabic" or "Indian" than "Western".

The Legend of John O'Connor tells the story of an Irish Sea Captain on voyage to America.

English Lyrics:

John O’Connor is a man of his word
Captain of the “Iolar na Mara”
Him and few young sailors
are proud Irish men.

They’ll leave the coast of motherlandAlthough originally written for folk instrumentation and voice, I created this arrangement for Celtic and/or Concert (Pedal) Harp Duet.
