Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Gallie presents Sionnach Rua’s Great Irish Song Book at Ararat Town Hall on Wednesday 27 April. The stage show will give the audience the feeling of visiting an Irish bar without having to leave their home town. Gallie said the music would be “world class” and a night not to be missed. “We’re bringing the culture of a whole other country to Ararat and they’re really going to appreciate it,” he said. “I’m going to make them cry, laugh and stomp. Between the songs there will be stories and snippets of Irish history, there will be something for everyone.” South, Gallie said Ararat was very close to his heart. “I was in Austria and I saw this beautiful thing go by on a snowboard,” he said. “I chased her down from the mountain to get his number; that was 23 years ago, and we now have two children. “It turned out she was from Ararat, so I go to Ararat all the time now. Ararat was the first place I went to when I landed in Australia, so it’s a pretty special place to me.” For the past two years, Gallie has kept busy while unable to perform, although he looks forward to returning to the stage on April 27. a regular salary every week to, I think, do eight concerts in two years. “I’m not one to sit and wait, so during lockdown I went to college and studied visual arts because I’m also a painter. “Although it’s great now that the world seems to be opening up again and I encourage everyone in Ararat to come out and support my first gig.” Growing up in Ireland, Gallie said he was immersed in music from an early age. “In Ireland, there is music everywhere and everyone is playing, when we were kids that was all we did,” he said. “We used to meet in someone’s shed and play music. “There are only three ways out of Dublin. It’s boxing, football or music. I wasn’t much of a fighter and I was brutal at football so the only chance I had left was the music.” for Gaillie was playing a 1,000-seat sold-out show in Brazil in 2020. “I was invited to do a festival and they said they would have an orchestra for me,” he said. “I thought they would have a few violins and a cello, maybe. “They led me to the rehearsal space and I walked into this huge hall with a 46-piece orchestra and a conductor , it was so surreal, it was just amazing.” Sionnach Rua’s Great Irish Song Book stage performance comes to Ararat Town Hall on April 27 and is sponsored by Ararat Rural Town Council and Ararat Live.” We would like to thank them for helping us organize the event and we look forward to seeing the people of Ararat experience Irish culture,” Gallie said. “Ararat is a great town with great people , can’t wait to be there.” While you’re with us, you can now get updates straight to your inbox from the Ararat announcer.

Ezra Furman has shared a new song, “Book of Our Names,” via lyric video. This is her second single since signing to ANTI-. The song is also released by British label Bella Union. Listen below, followed by Furman’s upcoming tour dates, which begin next month.

Furman had this to say about the song in a press release: “This song is about what it’s like to live together under an empire that doesn’t value your lives. I sing it as a Jew and as a trans woman, knowing well the stakes and the consequences of being part of a hated population. But it is a protest song intended to be used by any movement for survival and collective freedom. I noticed that the book of the Bible called Exodus in English, the one where the Hebrews escape from slavery in Egypt, is called the Book of Names in Hebrew. And I began to think that speaking names out loud, seeing individuals in their irreplaceable uniqueness, holds the seed of true liberation.

“Book of Our Names” follows “Point Me Toward the Real,” a new song Furman shared in early March that was his first single for ANTI-. “Point Me Toward the Real” was about someone coming out of a psychiatric hospital who made No. 1 on our Song of the Week list.

John Congleton (Angel Olsen, Future Islands, Sharon Van Etten) produced, engineered and recorded the new song, as did “Point Me Towards the Real”.

Furman’s last full album was 2019 twelve nudes. In 2021 surprise Furman released a new EP which features songs she wrote for season 3 of the Netflix show Sex education. It was well titled Sex Education – Season 3 Songs and featured three new songs, as well as two previously released songs with his former band Ezra Furman & The Harpoons in 2011. Furman did the music for all three seasons. In 2020, Furman shared the official soundtrack for seasons 1 and 2 of Sex educationas well as a video for the song “Every Feeling”.

WHEN a tear rolled down Dafydd Iwan’s cheek singing ‘Yma o Hyd’ before Wales’ World Cup play-off against Austria, many hailed it as a moment of national significance.

In a sports-mad country often touted as the ‘land of song’, it’s perhaps unsurprising that when football and music collide, great excitement ensues.

But Thursday’s performances – first by the 78-year-old folksinger, then on the pitch by eleven men in red – seemed to elevate our collective spirit into a realm beyond sport, song or mere emotion. .

According to English folk singer Martin Carthy, the chants and football songs are “the only surviving incarnation of an organic living folk tradition” – and the adoption of Iwan’s nearly 40-year-old defiance anthem , by a wide range of the Welsh public certainly seems to confirm this.

Written in the years after the landslide ‘No’ vote in the 1979 devolution referendum, and just before the seismic clash between the Conservative government of Margaret Thatcher and striking miners in South Wales and elsewhere, ‘Yma o Hyd’ celebrates the survival of the Welsh people and the Welsh language for almost two millennia – since Macsen Wledig withdrew the Roman legions from the island of Britain in 383 AD.

The song has been popular, particularly with Welsh-speaking audiences, for four decades, and has been credited with contributing to the change in attitude that prefigured the Welsh Language Act 1993 and the second – successful – referendum. on decentralization in 1997.

It now takes its place in the long tradition of football anthems, songs that some academics have theorized as a form of popular crest, in which a group vocalizes its identity against an outside group.

Singing at football matches dates back to the early days of the professional game in the late 19th century.

A ‘war cry’ was recorded during the 1887 Scottish Cup final, and many Victorian music hall songs referenced the game’s popularity, including ‘The Dooley Fitba’ Club’ from Glasgow-born James Curran, better known as ‘Football Crazy’. .

READ MORE: “Football and not rugby is the national sport of Wales”

Welsh supporters were among the first known to develop chants to support individual players. “Give it to Ballie” – striker Billy Ball – was a popular song by Swansea fans in the 1910s and is referenced in the academic tome Sport, Music, Identities, edited by Anthony Bateman.

But despite these early examples – and songs like Portsmouth’s ‘Play Up Pompey’ and Newcastle United’s ‘Blaydon Races’ which have survived to this day – it wasn’t until the 1960s that the songs and chants were have become an integral part of football fan culture.

During the 1962 and 1966 World Cups, more affordable travel allowed international fans to mix en masse and adopt each other’s popular chants, songs and tunes.

It is therefore perhaps unsurprising that the recent development of what is perhaps the most eclectic songbook in world football has coincided with the most successful period in the history of the Cymru national team. , during which fans traveled in greater numbers, developing what comedian Elis James called “a bilingual counterculture”.

Until recently, songs more associated with rugby than football were seamlessly integrated into the canon, in keeping with the inclusivity encapsulated in the tagline ‘Together Stronger’.

These include ‘Calon Lan’, a hymn written by Daniel James (Gwyrosydd) in the 1890s, and ‘Hymns and Arias’, a song specifically about rugby trips and other Welsh songs, written by the artist Max Boyce in 1971.

Frankie Valli’s 1967 hit, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” entered the repertoire via another modern folk tradition: advertising.

John Morgan, head of presentation and promotions at BBC Wales, made a short film to advertise a televised match – the crucial and ill-fated World Cup match against Romania in 1993.

Despite Wales’ failure to qualify for USA ’94 – Paul Bodin, the crossbar and all that – footage of Rush, Hughes, Saunders et al ‘playing their hearts out’, in what are now Umbro kits vintage and highly sought after, have passed into legend, and the song into a standard.

Fan favorites are often associated with particular games or periods in the team’s history. German DJ and producer Florian Senfter’s ‘Kernkraft 400’ – better known as Zombie Nation – became an unofficial anthem after Wales earned a goalless draw against Belgium in the Champions League qualifying campaign. Euro 2016.

The song was then played during Belgium’s visit to Cardiff, with a Gareth Bale goal giving Wales a 1-0 win and putting them on the road to historic tournament qualification.

Other songs popularized during Bale and Ramsey’s ‘golden age’ included ‘Don’t Take Me Home’, to the tune of Billy Ray Cyrus’ ‘Achy Breaky Heart’, and a whole series accompanied by the distinctive sound of eleven-piece brass ensemble The Barry Horns.

The National Wales: group of supporters of Wales THe Barry HornsTHe Barry Horns Wales Supporters Group

With the Horns installed atop the Canton Stand, or hidden in the corner of stadiums across Europe, Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody” has become indelibly associated with Joe Ledley.

“Push It” by Salt N Pepa with Hal Robson Kanu, “Gimme Hope Joanna” by Eddy Grant with Joe Allen and “Give it Up” by KC and the Sunshine Band first with Gareth Bale, then with Kieffer Moore.

Meanwhile, 2Unlimited’s ‘No Limit’ has taken on a number of Williams from Wales – from Ashley to Jonny, and now Neco.

It is no coincidence that many of these songs are laced with both joy and humour, expressing the sense of wonder and mild disbelief that many Welsh football fans – who have already endured for decades of disappointment – have felt since the rise of the national team’s fortunes, first under Gary Speed, then Chris Coleman and now Robert Page.

But there is also a current of real social change. Beneath the sea of ​​bucket hats and flags created to liquidate Florentino Perez, a new generation of football fans has grown up in a culture that is actively inclusive, genuinely bilingual and often independent in its feelings.

‘Viva Gareth Bale’ rejects the Union Jack. The Barry Horns released an independentist single, “Cymru Rydd”. And despite the noise of pop, rock, disco and techno, ‘Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau’ is still the piece de resistance.

No wonder Dafydd Iwan shed a tear.

Bob Dylan is a very prolific songwriter, having been releasing albums longer than many other artists are still alive. He racked up accolades like a Nobel Peace Prize, of course, and expanded far beyond music to painting and literature. Speaking of literature, Dylan announced that his next book is coming out very soon. The Philosophy of Modern Song will be published via Simon & Schuster on November 8, 2022. This one appears to be a simpler music book than his previous work, Chronicles Volume 1which was a stream of consciousness style memoir released in 2004.

According to a press release, this new book includes “over 60 essays focused on songs by other artists,” including Stephen Foster, Elvis Costello, Hank Williams and Nina Simone. Dylan reportedly started working on the book in 2010, and the Simon & Schuster CEO thinks it will help us understand what the songs mean to all of us. “The publication of Bob Dylan’s brilliant and kaleidoscopic work will be an international celebration of the songs of one of the greatest artists of our time,” said Simon & Schuster President and CEO Jonathan Karp. “The Philosophy of Modern Song could only be written by Bob Dylan. Her voice is unique and her work conveys her deep appreciation and understanding of the songs, the people who bring those songs to life, and what the songs mean to all of us.

I had the amazing experience last month of recording the One Hundred and Fifty Psalms for the new Catholic Hallow app. Over several sessions, sequestered in a small studio, I strove to communicate the intelligence, passion and dedication of the person (more likely people) who wrote these ancient poems. Although I have prayed the Psalms regularly as part of the Liturgy of the Hours for about forty years, I have never simply read them aloud, one after the other. It was both challenging and deeply prayerful – and it challenged me to see the Psalms with fresh eyes.

As I spoke these poems from the Church’s Privileged Prayer Book, I often thought of Dietrich von Hildebrand’s Reflections on the Heart. Von Hildebrand complained that the Catholic intellectual tradition pays great attention to the mind and the will, but painfully neglects the heart, that is, the seat of the passions and emotions. In the presence of a value, he says, the whole person responds, the mind appreciating what is true in it, the will seeking what is good in it, and the heart delighting in its beauty. This multivalent “value response” occurs in relation to, say, Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, a pristine winter morning, a beautiful face, or an elegant mathematical equation. And it happens, par excellence, in relation to the supreme value of God. The mind delights in the truth of God (think of the writings of Thomas Aquinas); the will responds to the infinite goodness of God (think of the dedication of Maximilian Kolbe or the Little Flower); and the heart overflows before its splendor (think of the words and gestures of the liturgy).

Now, there is certainly something of Aquinas in the Psalms, for one could derive from them a theology of God; and there is indeed something of Kolbe in them, for one could deduce a moral program from them; but there is in them, above all, the pain, the desire and the pleasure of the heart. The Psalmist exults, laments, spits his anger, excoriates his enemies, praises God and rebukes God; he is so happy that he can hardly contain himself, and he is so deeply sad that he wants to sleep with the dead. The motto St. John Henry Newman took on when he became cardinal was cor ad cor loquitur (the heart speaks to the heart). I can’t think of a better description of what happens as we recite the Psalms: to the God who poured out his heart for us, we pour out our own hearts.

A second strong impression I got from reading all of the Psalms is the stress they place on enemies. I would bet that “enemy” and “enemy” are among the most common words in the book of Psalms. Again and again, the author agonizes for those who oppose him; those who threaten him, both with words and with swords; those who plot against him, those who make fun of him; those who would be happy to see him in his grave; etc., etc. Moreover, the Psalmist actively wants their destruction, their defeat, their humiliation; he even wants to break the heads of their children! The reader of the Psalms could be forgiven for thinking that the author of these texts is more than a bit paranoid.

But I don’t think the psychologization of the Psalmist is nearly as interesting as the reflection on the theology that provides the context for his concern for his enemies. The simple truth is that in a fallen world the righteous man will have enemies, and the more righteous he is the more he will have. The person without enemies, as Churchill rightly saw, is untrustworthy because he represents nothing. There is of course no better example of this principle than Jesus himself compared to his contemporaries. As the Gospels unfold, we see Jesus’ army of antagonists grow exponentially, and by the end of the story, these opponents have put him to death. The opposition to him is so intense that we can say that the sins of the world are placed upon him. Of course, Jesus never ceased to urge love for his enemies and, from the top of the cross, he spoke a word of forgiveness to those who were putting him to death. But as Stanley Hauer said, to love your enemies, you have to have enemies. It is difficult to read the Psalms and not grasp these particular dynamics.

A third and final point I would like to emphasize is that the Psalms express the distinctive dialogical quality of biblical religion. It is a commonplace to say that Christianity is a revealed religion, that is to say founded, not so much on philosophical speculation or mythological imagination, but on the word that God addresses to us. A divine person has spoken to us and so it is only natural that we respond to him – in praise, thanksgiving, frustration, bewilderment and sorrow. The Psalms, perhaps more than any other book in the Bible, display this conversational quality of biblical faith. And, therefore, it is perfectly fitting that the Church has liturgically used the Psalms as the optimal way to respond to the Word of God. Although often obscured by poor readers or set to tragic melodies, the responsorial Psalms at Mass are just that: the preferred way in which we respond to the God who has spoken to us. It was actually a particularly exciting thing that as I read aloud these ancient texts and felt the emotion of the author, I felt that I was indeed converse with the mysterious one who had first started the conversation.

So if you feel like your spiritual life has dried up a bit, or if you feel like you’ve drifted away from the God who loves you, I might recommend that you open the Church hymnal and sing along.
