now playing: karan casey: beat of my heart video
Karan Casey sings the contemporary irish song, Beat of My Heart/Buille Mo Chroi. The song was written by Louis de Paor, and is better known in the gritty, hard edged version done by de Paor's frequent writing partner and old school chum, John Spillane. Casey brings a different sort of energy to the song, engaging on its own, and in keeping with another aspect of the song's spirit. Check out her backing musicians, too. Can you name them?
