Gaoth Barra na dTonn
My take on this wonderful Irish Gaelic song, which I learned from Clannad, and which was written by Diarmuid MacDiarmada. Donegaler Mefites, please don't kill me if I've mangled the pronunciation! [more inside]
Bonnie Blue Eyed Nancy
Not written by me, a song I learned ages ago in Ireland. Not much is known of where it comes from, apart from having been collected from Bess Cronin 30 years ago. I learned it from Phil Callery. I love this song for its soaring melody line; you really do imagine you're standing at the top of a mountain!
The Private's Lament
The companion piece to the Turret Gunner's Farewell. This one's about my other great uncle, who fought in WWI and lived to tell the tale. (A bit more downbeat than TGF, and a bit of creative licence taken regarding his hometown.)
The Turret Gunner's Farewell
A song I wrote a couple of years ago as a tribute to my great uncle Bernard, who went down in a Halifax III during WWII. Oh hell. Just listen to the song to get the story.
