Legacy of a Quiet Man
Compact Disc (Audio)
No of Discs:
This album reaches across years and musical styles to bring together the talents of three outstanding musicians in a truly remarkable story. Although very much an album of the 21st Century, the story begins in Kells, Co. Meath in the 1950s. Dick Farrelly, a songwriter who was as quiet and unassuming as he was talented, was working as a policeman in Dublin when suddenly fame was thrust upon him. The famous film director John Ford heard his song " Isle Of Innisfree " and chose it as the theme music for his legendary film " The Quiet Man". Dick's son Gerard discovered an old suitcase at home that had belonged to his father, wherein he found a treasure trove of old hand written manuscripts of over 200 songs and poems - the legacy of a quiet man! Tracks: Seolta Bana / The Isle Of Innisfree / Annaghdown / People Like You And Me / If You Ever Fall In Love again / When Today Is Yesterday / Shores Of Loch Leven / We Dreamed Our Dreams / Cottage By The Lee / The Gypsy Maiden / Black Is The Colour / Siobhan.
