EARLIER THIS week we showed you some footage of the great Donegal fiddler John Doherty playing a superb piece.
Here’s a full documentary on John…perfect for the weekend!
“Drinking all the day in old pubs
where fiddlers love to play
Someone touched the bow,
he played a reel
it seemed so fine and gay
Stood on Lisfannon beach
and cast in wild foam we found Atlantic bass
Living on your western shore,
saw summer sunsets asked for more
I stood by your Atlantic sea
and sang a song for Ireland.”
