News: NEW MUSIC FOR ATHY

 

This year the school will feature a performance by Jake Wilson of his original composition 'All's Well'. The songs were inspired by the journals, letters and biographies of all five men of Captain Robert Falcon Scott's ill fated polar party and are an attempt to capture their thoughts and feeelings as they realise their death is inevitable.

 Jake Wilson is a folk-rock guitarist and songwriter in the Richard Thompson mould. As well as performing his own material, Jake currently plays with ex-Fairport Convention folk fiddle legend, Dave Swarbrick, who has described him as “one of the best guitarists and songwriters around today”.
