TUNE Allison Crowe - The Wild Rover
Like Edith Piaf, John Lennon, Luke Kelly, and other such vital, visceral, music-makers, Allison Crowe rocks.
Singing and playing everything, here's Allison's take on one of the liveliest of tunes from Ireland or Scotland, "The Wild Rover". (The original author is unknown.) This be the newest recording of a song that's sailed forward from the 12th century lapping along the foggy shores of time.
The song is found on "Newfoundland Vinyl II", Allison Crowe's latest album, (and her third album globally released in 2014).
As the album title suggests, is another song collection inspired by, and arising from, Allison's involvement with the hit stage show, "Newfoundland Vinyl" - presented at Canada's Gros Morne Theatre Festival, and produced by Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador.
TNL's Artistic Director Jeff Pitcher conceived the musical production and Allison Crowe has served as the show's Musical Director for three Summers now at GMTF.
