Ivor Gurney: “The Fiddler of Dooney”

This year, I am a weekly contributor to a group on Facebook called “A New Song Each Day”. The idea is to introduce fellow art song lovers to songs that they might not have known about. The posts may include links to video performances of the songs. For Saint Patrick’s Day, I made a recording with pianist Michael Misiurak of a setting of Yeats’s poem “The Fiddler of Dooney”, uploaded it to Youtube and posted the song to the group.
