Mood: Listening Playing: Four green fields
Tonight in the theatre, various artists performed.
First on stage was local slam poet Jaap Montagne.
After Jaap Montagne were Blue Monday.
They played various types of Irish folk music, both instrumentals and with vocals.
Also Four Green Fields.
A song ostensibly on a farming woman and her family facing unnamed crooks trying to take away her land.
However, this is a thinly veiled metaphor for the history of Ireland with its invasions and occupations from England.
And other songs by the Wolfe Tones.
After a pause, I did my column on George W. Bush, “Intelligent Design” and the Divine (were they really??) voices in his head telling him to invade Iraq.
The young rappers of Horizontaal were next.
One of their raps criticized Bush’s so called war on terror.
Then, Jaap Montagne came back for his second set.
This time not as a poet, but as a singer and guitar player.
All his songs of tonight were Bob Dylan songs.
Including Like a rolling stone; I shall be released; Love Minus Zero; and Just like a woman.
