I and the Village
In this collection, Gabriel Fitzmaurice sings of his native Kerry, finding in the places and people around him, and in everyday occurrences, themes of universal importance. He casts his unerring eye on his relationships with friends, neighbours and the wider world, shedding light on the eternal subjects of love and loss. Drawing inspiration from folklore and ballad-singing, he brings new life to traditional rhyming forms and to the spoken language of his country.
