New Release: 'Songs On Irish Poetry' by Gustavo Benavides

Monday, 7 May 2007 The latest Deserted Village release (Number 31) is a CDR by Gustavo Benavides called Songs On Irish Poetry. Gustavo is from Argentina and has released six albums already. For this latest one he has set a few poems by Irish poets to music and he sings them with the backing only of his guitar. The songs and arrangements here are simple and uncluttered so that the melodies and poems are never overshadowed. This is available now in the shop.
