We Five has been singing The Dutchman, Mike Smith’s enchanting song about loved ones aging, since I first learned if from the Irish Rovers in 1970. It’s one of the most requested songs at our concerts after You Were On My Mind—which is amazing since it has never made it onto one of our CDs! After seeing and hearing a recording that was made of us performing the song at a concert earlier this year, we’ve decided to share it with fans who’ve been asking for almost forty years. It’s now posted on YouTube and you can access it from the interactive Blog page on our website, www.wefive.net, or by going to YouTube at www.youtube.com/officialwefive.
Please feel to share it with others who love music done in a classic folk style—or to anyone else who might find the tender treatment of love and aging comforting. JB
