niallon – Beeswing

It’s buy one get one free season with niallon! This one was very spur of the moment as we were working through our requests list. I first came across this track via Christy Moore’s cover on his 2004 album Burning Times. As he so often does, Christy went and took a great song that he injected his own unique brand of soul into. As I always do though, I went and sought out the original and it too is just an incredible piece of music and songwriting in it’s own entirely different way. I didn’t know Richard Thompson from Adam beforehand and haven’t listened to too much of his stuff since, but the standout elements from both tracks are what I have tried to incorporate into this version. Be it the mournful weary tone that comes through via Christy or the simply beautiful guitar work on Thompson’s original, what we’ve produced here sits somewhere between the two. One of my all time favourite songs, one that I hope we have done some measure of justice to. Once again we have to commend Vicki for her awesome skills with the camera adding that extra bit of life to the video for us too. As always watch, like, share, subscribe!
