The re-issue of the classic 1976 Mulligan Records album, 'DARK HORSE ON THE WIND' by Liam Weldon.

In a musical career spanning more than 30 years, Liam Weldon became recognized as one of Ireland?s great folk singer-songwriters. Born in Dublin in 1933, Weldon was passionate about lyrics and singing. He had a lifelong interest in the songs of the Irish Travelers and his own songs reflected a strong awareness of poverty, disadvantage and exploitation. His personal ballad style married together elements of many different musical genres and the precision of intent in his abrasive lyrics is unmistakable. Six years working in England from the age of sixteen tempered his social awareness, but yet his lyrics often have deep lyric sensitivity.
Originally released in 1976 on Mulligan Records, 'DARK HORSE ON THE WIND' is a collection of traditional songs and original compositions and includes well-know versions of ?James Connolly?, ?The Blue Tar Road? and ?Dark Horse On The Wind?. It?s the perfect ?Dublin mix? of personal and political and the songs of love and the songs of liberty and is now regarded as a classic in Irish music. Featuring accompaniment by Donal Lunny (bouzouki) and Paddy O?Brien (accordion).
