John Doyle: “James Larkin”
 
The Irish guitarist, songwriter, and singer performs a song about an Irish labor organizer from the early 1900s.

John Doyle can do it all. From his days as a founding member of Solas, he has been regarded as one of the great guitarists of his generation. His songwriting, whether about the Irish emigrant experience or other topics, captures the Irish and human condition in sharp detail. And his singing and interpreting of others’ songs is authentic and exciting.

John was recently in Northern California for a solo tour, and we caught him at the Tree House Concert Series in San Anselmo, California. During that show, he played this lively version of “James Larkin,” written by Donagh McDonagh The song chronicles the 1913 labor lockout in Dublin, in which Larkin led thousands of Irish laborers in a strike and fight for workers’ rights.
