Mystery Train Monday 25 May 2020
On tonight's Mystery Train Sunday Service, another chance to hear John's 2018 interview with composer Gavin Bryars who talks about his approach to composition, and working with the likes of John Cage, Tom Waits and Father John Misty.
Gavin was in Ireland to perform as part of Louth Contemporary Music Society's festival in 2018. He spoke to John about his iconic 'Jesus Blood Never Failed Me Yet', which he was about to perform in its' original version at St. Nicholas in Dundalk with 30 local school children. You can now listen to that performance below, made available to us by Louth CMS and Gavin Bryars below.
On our Mystery Train Sunday Service, John is joined by a special guest who picks the tunes. You can stream or download each programme via the RTÉ Player, or via the Apple Store and Spotify.
