Description

Steeped in the poetic traditions of Robert Lowell and Langston Hughes, Phil Langran's carefully crafted songs interweave folk, Americana, Celtic and blues music to create a unique genre where Harlem nights and New York cityscapes rub shoulders with the West coast of Ireland and scenes from Werner Herzog's films. This album features three Langran originals alongside eight musical settings of the poems of the great American poet Langston Hughes. "When I first encountered the work of Langston Hughes, I heard the voices of the last long century and more. I heard solitary cries and massed choruses, public outbursts and whispered hopes. Hughes' lyrical, angry, tender but always impassioned words re-drew the map of poetry for me. But they also re-drew the musical map, singing out everything from field hollers to old world ballads, love songs and leaving blues." - Phil Langram "Premier league wordsmithery" - Tykes News
