Summerfly

Maura O’Connell

In another younger day I could dream the time away
In the universe inside my room
And the world was really mine from june til september
And if it wasn’t really so I was lucky not to know
And I was lucky not to wonder why
Because the summer time is all that I remember

A summer fly was buzzin’ every night when I was young
In the gentle world my childlike senses knew
And the world was just my cousin
And the wind was just the tongue
In the voice my lonely moments listened to

And I look at me today all the dreams have gone away
And I’m where I never thought I would be
Seein’ things I never thought I would see happen’en to me
And I lay awake at night til the darkness turns to
Light
Hearin’ voices callin’ out my name
Dronin’ over and again the same message to me

Cryin’ who’s your partner, who’s your darlin’, who’s
Your baby now?
Who wakes up at night to pull you in
But it don’t matter, you’ll just make her lonely anyhow
I don’t know why you even try to win

Cryin’ who’s your partner, who’s your darlin’, who’s
Your baby now?
Who wakes up at night to pull you in
But it don’t matter, you’ll just make her lonely anyhow
I don’t know why you even try to win

But it don’t matter, you’ll just make her lonely anyhow
I don’t know why you even try to win

Sharon Shannon, ‘Galway Girl’ Finale, Fleadh Cheoil 2010. Cavan

Published on Aug 28, 2010

Exciting, high energy end to a great gig, & intriguing to watch Sharon Shannon interact dynamically with musicians, people backstage, and members of the audience simultaneously , while effortlessly delivering amazing music, with the same warmth as her captivating smile. Video work is a bit shaky, but hopefully shares the wonderful spirit of the fleadh cheoil, that evening in Cavan, on Sunday August 22nd, 2010. The town was full to capacity, when Sharon performed, with many people listening from a distance, down ‘packed’ streets. There were so many people in the town (organizers mentioned 85,000), that the show ended early to ensure safety of music fans. From Sharon’s website: Sharon has recorded and toured with….Bono, Adam Clayton, Sinead O’Connor, Jackson Browne, John Prine, Steve Earl, Mark Knopfler, The Chieftains, The Waterboys, Willie Nelson, Nigel Kennedy, Alison Krauss, and Shane Mc Gowan… Featuring: Sharon Shannon: Accordion Dezi Donnelly: violin Jack Maher: electric guitar Jim Murray: acoustic guitar Guest: banjo Related websites: http://www.sharonshannon.com/ http://www.myspace.com/sharonshannon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sharon_S… http://www.dezidonnelly.com/ http://www.myspace.com/jackmaher1976 http://www.fleadh2010.ie/Default.aspx… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fleadh_C… http://comhaltas.ie/ From Wikipedia: The Fleadh Cheoil (Festival of Music) is an Irish music competition run by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (CCÉ). There are various stages to the competition. In Ireland there are county and provincial competitions leading to the All-Ireland Fleadh. In Britain there are regional then national stages of qualification for the All-Ireland. Competitions are divided into the following age categories: under 12, 12-15, 15-18, and over 18 (senior). The first national festival of Irish traditional music was held in Mullingar in 1951. At its inaugural meeting in September 1951, CCÉ came up with the title of Fleadh Cheoil, aiming to make this a great national festival of traditional music. The fleadh has been held in many different venues. In the years that followed, the number of would-be competitors grew so large that qualifying stages had to be arranged at county and provincial level. Since then, Fleadh Nua (the new fleadh), Fleadh na Breataine (an All-Britain fleadh) and regional fleadhanna in Britain, and two major fleadhanna in the USA have also become annual CCÉ events. From its beginning, the goal of the Fleadh Cheoil was to establish standards in Irish traditional music through competition. The Fleadh developed as a mainly competitive event, but it also included many concerts, céilíthe, parades, and sessions. Today, nearly 50 years on, fleadhanna at each level provide a platform and a meeting place for the thousands of musicians (around 20,000 performers compete in fleadhanna each year), singers and dancers who carry on the tradition.
