Subject: Rún/Steven Finn and more - 7th December, London
From: folkandroots
Date: 28 Nov 09 - 08:22 AM

For anyone in the London area we are holding our next night at The Wilmington Arms, Clerkenwell on the 7th Dec featuring Rún and Steven Finn with support slots by Laura Victoria, You Are Wolf and Sarah Jane Miller, be good to see some of you from this parish.

More details at the usual places on the web,

www.folkonmonday.co.uk, myspace and Facebook..


Rún collect and arrange old folk songs written in the ancient language of Erin. So far, thanks to Nora from Donegal, they have a nice wee collection of well-known ditties and are now adding to their repertoire with some unusual old forgotten songs from the province of Ulster. Rún are five fantastic lassies who perform four-part vocal arrangements of old Gaelic songs like 'An Cailín Rua' (the red-haired girl), 'Casadh an tSúgain' (twisting the hayrope) and 'Bo Na Leath Adhairce' (the one-horned cow). Rún is the Gaelic word for 'secret, wish or love' (cf. rune).

From an early age Steven Finn's ears were filled with the music of Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Johnny Cash and old time country music. Aged 15 he began teaching himself the guitar, learning songs like Leadbelly's 'Bourgeois Blues' and Charlie Daniels' 'The devil went down to Georgia'. On hearing Bob Dylan songs Finn started to write his own words and in doing so found a lifelong passion for Jazz and Folk Blues, a getaway car he could drive.
