Subject: owl song by big al whittle
Recently Phil Widdows did me the great honour of selecting this song to be one of the very first played on his new FolkCast radio style programme. Of course I was pleasantly surprised that he should choose one of my songs, but his choice of The Owl Song had me puzzled.
It is a song I have never performed in public – it is a private song. However it is a piece of work that must have occupied my attention for quite a while, and I thought maybe it might be of interest to some of you.
I have written a little essay about it and its origins and the intensity which some people have commented on. And I have made it available on a webpage of my site which you can access easily.
I hope some of you find it worth a read and listen. to access the site page
