Last Night's Fun PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Last Night's Fun free pdf In this tribute to Irish traditional music, each chapter is given the title of a tune and, as in a session played by improvising musicians, each tune leads into another, melodies and variations weaving in and out in a haze of talk and memory. The book is an unsentimental evocation of music, but also polemic, autobiography and poetry, and aims to draw the reader into the atmosphere of the world in which the music is made - a player's music that is never the same twice. Ciaran Carson's reminiscences include how he learned to play, and they also evoke fugitive nights in pubs, and honour the memory of dead players. He is a poet and an accomplished flute player, and his books include "Belfast Confetti" and "First Language", which won the T.S. Eliot Prize. He has also won the "Irish Times" Literary Prize.

He is also the author of The Pocket Guide to Irish Traditional Music.
