Last summer I wrote a little bit about the Irish singer Cara Dillon and her album 'Hill of Thieves'. I've been listening to that album again this week and I would have to say it is very much my favourite CD of last year. It is totally folk but with a very modern interpretation in places - at times it sounds like the album Kate Bush might have made if she'd ever gone Irish folkie (and that's a compliment, I assure you...Kate Bush is brill). Here's another song from 'Hill of Thieves' (and I picked this clip because some of the live ones cut off before the end or had poor quality sound). There is a link between this song and my last post too...not a very subtle one. It seems my passion for all things Irish continues apace too (and we had Irish-American John Doyle at the folk club last week and he was EXCELLENT!).
