Joe Henry discusses THE WEXFORD CAROLS in Country Update interview
Renowned record producer Joe Henry mentions working in Ireland on Heresy Record’s latest release THE WEXFORD CAROLS in an interview with Australia’s nation country magazine Country Update.
“Yeah I’m producing a record of Irish Christmas music from the 1600’s, a group of songs known as “The Wexford Carols” with a traditional Irish singer called Caitríona O’Leary our guests were Roseanne Cash and Rhiannon Giddens from the Carolina Chocolate Drops and Sir Tom Jones, they were all with us in Ireland.”
That sounds like an incredibly interesting project.
“I think it was and shall be… Catriona is a very gifted singer of very old traditional music (though not exclusively) she’s been very devoted to this body of songs and when I was brought on board to produce I was given a fairly open hand to invite a few guests to broaden the canvas some.”
