DUBLIN 11, DUBLIN, IRELAND, December 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Krunchie Killeen has released, on Spotify and the other digital channels, his new tune, “Santa Is Coming,” an upbeat version of The Derry Hornpipe, where the drumbeat and music suggests the brisk approach of Santa’s sleigh. Krunchie’s excited voice is heard, over the music, shouting hoarsely “Santa Clause is Coming … I hear his sleigh … I hear the sleighbells … Listen, listen …”

Why so late in the day, and Christmas almost upon us? It is because he was not thinking of any such release until just now. He had recently used The Derry Hornpipe as background music to his recitation “Bertie of the Golden Hand,” which contrasted the prosperous era of the Celtic Tiger, under Taoiseach (i.e., Prime Minister) Bertie Ahern, with the subsequent years of recession and Pandemic.

Recently, he thought of doing an upbeat version of the tune, exploiting drumbeat, electric guitar, trombone and harmonica, to give a lively rendition. As he completed the transformation of the tune, it occurred to him that it could suggest the energetic and purposeful sleigh-ride of Santa. Hence, he added the excited comments to the tune and gave it its new title.
