Blackbird & Crow – Harlot On Holy Hill / The Witch That Could Not Be Burned
Must be the season of the witch.
If electric pagan blues is your thing, then you’re going to love the new video from Donegal duo Maighread Grace (top left) and Stephen Doohan (top right) aka Blackbird & Crow.
In her innately musical Donegal accent, Maighread delivers a declamatory spoken word tale of a free-spirited jezebel hunted by pitchfork-wielding yokels, while Stephen rips it up with a meaty slide guitar riff that would have the ghost of Rory Gallagher doing the duckwalk.
Nick says: Live at the witch trials.
