Favourite guitarist John Doyle playing Queen of the earth, child of the sky

A couple of years ago I had the chance to encounter John Doyle while we were at the same festival in Finland. He made a solo performance there that is forever living in my memory.

Earlier that day we had lunch together and talked among other things about mining songs. In his set list of music that night he added a mining song, powerful in beauty and rawness. He also invited me up on stage to sing one mining song together with him, Dark as a dungeon.

Here's a taster for you: Queen of the earth, child of the sky & Coolaney Reel.

We swaped cd's and now his album Shadows and light is one of the CD's that is played again and again here at home. You can get it on line, I'm sure! Check out amazon.com or his own webpage: www.johndoylemusic.com/

Here's a link if you want to see and hear him perform a song from that CD, his own piece The Arabic.
