PostSubject: The Spoken Word on CD   Mon Apr 07, 2008 10:41 pm

I bought a CD called The Poet and The Piper about a year or so ago. Since the I have invested in a few more spoken word/poetry CDs.

I love em. I cant (wont) read poetry but I'll happily listen to Seamus Heaney "Diggin Spuds" with Liam Og O'Flynn playing the Uilainn in the background.

I also got one called "To the Waters and The Wild" in which the poetry of W.B. Yates is read against a background of haunting Irish trad tunes.

It makes me feel all "literary" all over.

I also got John Montague & the Cheiftains but its a long and epic peom and a bit heavy.

So now I'm hooked. I want more but I cant find it. Where can I get spoken word CDs of poetry or even great short stories?

I can't help you on your quest. I did try one of those audio books a while back, it just wasn't the same.

Just two spoken poetry CDs.

I think I might have discovered a niche market. Seamus Heaney is great to listen to. I think its his soft Northern Irish accent makes it sound wonderful.


plus the background of the traditional music gives it a truly poetic feel.

Or week if too arduous

I had a listen to this during the week and really enjoyed it. Thanks.

It harks back to the days when poetry was a political, satirical tool to be reckoned with - it would be great to see those days again.

Woody Harrelson - who would have thought?

Any other suggestions, Johnny?

I got it originally to hear Máirtín O Díreáin's Faoiseamh a Gheobhadsa read aloud but there's some other amazing stuff on it too

The clips sound brilliant. My Irish is truely crap, however. My Irish teacher used to have a little joke; "Keogh (Ceo; Irish for mist), you hav'nt the foggiest" Smile or when I got yet another No Grade in Irish he would say "Well Keogh, at least your consistant."
Funnily enough I got on very well with him. I did'nt give a shite about Irish but I was fascinated by place names. "Why is Mayo called that?" and so on. He was actually very patient with my questions considering he had a class to teach.
