Our Song of the Day comes from Dublin-based urban alt-folk sextet The Mariannes and their new new single The Black Diary Waltz. It pays tribute to Roger Casement; coinciding with the 1916 Easter Rising centenary celebrations.
A great folk and roots mix to welcome in the weekend with featuring new music from Shooglenifty, Richard Thompson, Kila, Blueflint, The Milk Carton Kids and many more.
The Mariannes are still considered to be something of a secret in their native Ireland. On the strength of this all-too-brief collection any attempt by the Dublin-based urban alt-folk sextet to expand their horizons beyond the Emerald Isle’s shores would be very welcome.
