... has this acoustic overture, I've heard at least since 2015, to Dylan's concerts a name? If it might have been discussed here elsewhere, sorry for asking :wink:

When he plays Dublin in a few weeks a lot of the casual fans will think Bob is opening with the Foggy Dew.

It's a very well known song in Ireland, and has been used by Conor McGregor as his entrance music :lol:

The great Luke Kelly version is untouchable - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35CBWwy98nc

Quote:
Right proudly high over Dublin town
They hung out a flag of war.
'Twas better to die 'neath an Irish sky
Than at Suvla or Sud el Bar.
And from the plains of Royal Meath
Strong men came hurrying through;
While Brittania's huns with their great big guns
Sailed in through the foggy dew.

'Twas England bade our wild geese go
That small nations might be free.
But their lonely graves are by Suvla's waves
On the fringe of the gray North Sea.
But had they died by Pearse's side
Or fought with Cathal Brugha,
Their names we'd keep where the Fenians sleep
'Neath the shroud of the foggy dew.

I'm just listening to Friday and Saturday's shows and this is the first time I heard that intro. I immediately thought 'The Foggy Dew'. As a fan & friend of The Clancys, Bob would have heard this song regularly in The White Horse in the 60s. Hair raising :-)

And Stu is from Boston. As an aspiring musician checking out the local music bars he too would have heard this song regularly.
