Back To The Live Stream 5 WB Yeats

Posted on 17 May 2020

This week I decided to sing compositions of mine which are poems of WB Yeats pulled off the page. It’s been quite a while since I sang these WB Yeats poem-songs so I really got a kick out of performing them for you yesterday. If you missed it then the shortcuts for the poems are all here and under in the YouTube description/comments. The Album Whorls is available exclusively on Bandcamp as a download at the moment. The album versions have lots of extra instruments and there are some extra Yeats poems which I did not play live on this occasion. So do check it out.
