Chicago 2000 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Levin Performance Studio, Chicago, IL; December 9, 2000 (rebroadcast December 19, 2015). Very good FM.

Kiltartan Road runs through the barony of Kiltartan in County Galway, Ireland. It was there, through the work of Yeats, Gregory, Synge, and their companions, that Irish folklore and folk speech entered into the mainstream of English poetry and theatre. -

“A joy. Poetry to the ears. Alternately tender and rousing… Joseph Sobol’s song settings mirror the Irish master equally in joy and sorrow. Yeats would be proud to hear his verse so magically restored. Yeats urged himself to “write for the ear so that you may be instantly understood, as when actor or folk singer stands before an audience.” Backed by singers Kathy Cowan and Tom Orf, guitarist Sobol does just that…” - Chicago Tribune
