Davey: Granuaile





This is another very fine work by this very talented composer. It relates the story of one of the most “colourful” characters in early Irish history, Grace O’Malley, and her exploits and adventures. It is well worth reading up on Grace as it will also be very worth your time listening to this ingenious and engaging work. It is an orchestrated work with occasional uilleann pipes and its musical language is modern but is based on the traditional Irish music idiom. It is a great vocal and musical story. It was written for the voice of Rita Connolly and she is superb in her interpretation and performance.

Looking for different performances of Tangled up in blue, I happened upon this YouTube tutorial, which includes a couple of very funny parodies of Dylan, both in the spoken intro and at 5 minutes in:
