The angelic Wailin Jennys from Canada are the darlings of the roots music scene. Their name is a play on Waylon Jennings, an influential country musician. Here is an capella song of parting.

Poor Neda Agha-Soltan studied philosophy and took singing lessons; a bold thing to do, because officially Iranian women are not permitted to sing at all. Sad. So very sad.

The Parting Glass

Oh all the money that e’er I spent
I spent it in good company
And all the harm that e’er I’ve done
Alas, it was to none but me
And all I’ve done for want of wit
To memory now I can’t recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all

Oh all the comrades that e’er I’ve had
Are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e’er I’ve had
Would wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I’ll gently rise and I’ll softly call
Good night and joy be with you all
