Hidden Histories: The Foggy Dew

Diverging from the usual Hidden Histories this week we explore one of Sinead O’Connor’s most defining recordings, her take on 'The Foggy Dew', which was recorded with The Chieftains for their 1995 'The Long Black Veil'. For The Chieftains, whose commercial success in America was central to the band, it was a bold move. It was recorded in the very city where O’Connor’s controversial protest on Saturday Night Life had happened, just a few short years earlier. Donal Fallon joined Gavan Reilly for another episode of Hidden Histories to discuss.
