Clover’s Revenge say “The Merry Misadventures of Sister Mary Margaret” was inspired by an article about gambling Catholic nuns they read on IrishCentral
Clover’s Revenge, an Irish American Celtic rock band based in Florida, has released a new single inspired by none other than an article that they read right here on IrishCentral.
In a post on their website, Clover’s Revenge says: “Our latest single, “The Merry Misadventures of Sister Mary Margaret”, is a true story.
“Sr. Mary Margaret was a nun recently apprehended for stealing from an elementary school to feed her gambling habit. Along with her partner, she took over $500,000 during her years-long crime spree.
“With a dash of Morrison’s jig thrown in, this epic tale is the perfect Irish pub song. It is the first single from the band’s upcoming CD, Truants and Absolution, to be released in early 2020.
“You can read about here in the article from IrishCentral that was the source of our inspiration.”
Thanks, Clover’s Revenge!
The group, made up of Beau Wilberding on Cajon Drum, Zach Johnson on guitar and vocals, and John Barron on vocals, mandolin, and guitar, says: "Our power trio makes a very large sound full of acoustic alchemy and hand-clapping beats. We play originals and well-loved Irish and Scottish tunes. We’ll travel nation-wide to bring our Irish Speed Folk to you and your audiences.”
