music for father's day

In her song I’ll Go Too, Carrie Newcomer traces the turns from father reassuring daughter to daughter giving her father comfort. It’s a gentle take on growing, risking, grieving, faith, and connection. My Father's Only Son offers another look at the father and child connection, changing as the child grows, framed in memorable images of fishing and evenings in the midwest. You may find both of these songs on her album Betty's Diner: The Best of Carrie Newcomer.

If you might be looking for an Irish tune for the day, guitarist Donal Clancy has that covered, with the piece Ask My Father, on his recording
Close to Home.
