Karan Casey: Dunlavin Green
A traditional Irish song in the hands of a fine Celtic folk singer.
Karan Casey's performance pulses quiet like the waters, a sweet voice floated over light piano and a subtle string arrangement. But underneath the stillness and surface beauty is the song itself, which tells the tale of The Massacre of Dunlavin Green, a public-square execution of 36 Irish prisoners of war and suspected rebels during the early days of the Irish Rebellion of 1778.
