DT Lyrics:





Subject: Reconciliation
From: Tim Salt
Date: 04 Apr 01 - 03:34 PM

I know this is a bit of a long shot, but..............

I was at a session at the weekend and some one sang a song called Reconciliation. It was played to a slow Air which I could hum to you, but that's the drawback of the internet.

I know there's not a lot to go on, but does anybody recognise what I'm trying to describe and can point me in the direction of the lyrics?

Thanks

Tim

Tim: do you have Kavana's recording of the song? If not it's on "1798-1998 Irish Songs of Rebellion, Resistance & Reconciliation" Proper Records R2CD 40 73/1. 1998. Email Ron K at: kavana@proper.demon.co.uk

There's a lot more "resistance and rebellion" on the double CD than "reconciliation". However the quality of the musicianship is, for me at least, top of the range and includes the likes of Chopper from the Oyster Band, need I say more, breathing new life into songs that I thought were dead and buried years ago, like Shan Van Vocht, Brennan on the Moor and The Wearing of the Green. The album is officially listed as being by "The Alias Acoustic Band" and you can get it cut rate at £5.99. Kavana is a "London/Irishman" from Cork.

I forgot, it's also on Ron's 1991 solo album "Home Fire". His sleeve note includes "of all the songs I have written to date this one is my favourite. The lovers in the song are meant to represent the north and south of Ireland".

Tim - Thanks for the info on "1798-1998 Irish Songs of Rebellion, Resistance & Reconciliation". I've seen the CD in the shops but had no idea who the artists were. I'll be buying it now. I didn't even realise it was Proper Records. They've done some brilliant sets of great old music, really cheap.

Of course, it was Ron Kavana who put together "Farewell to Ireland" a 4CD set of tunes and songs recorded by Irish-Americans before the last war, Michael Coleman and people like that. There's a great Western Swing set, a great Blues set and a 4CD set of Spike Jones in my collection too.

Ron Kavana is a fine songwriter and performer. His version of 19th Nervous Breakdown is an inspiration! My partner, Maggie, performs Gone Shopping and I do his Midnight on the Water song (and before Norma Waterson got hold of it).

Cheers, Les

Hi Les, could you let us know what you think of the music. Generally I love it but Ron has some little idiosyncracies, such as in "Boolavogue" changing the village name "The Harrow" (In Irish "An Braca") to the Barrow (the river). This make no sense to me as Father John Murphy's 1798 revolt began at The Harrow on the road between Ferns and Boolavogue. Look forward to "hearing" from you.
