His latest edition to the ‘Start of Something Blue’
is the great tragedy:
‘Deirdre of the Sorrows’
“A heartbreaking story of a young woman whose life is ruined by a terrible king… driven to the extreme of suicide.”
Nathan Mac grew up travelling through the Irish countryside with his family. He lived the stories of Fionn, Medb, & Cu Chulainn, visiting the most famous sites in Irish literature. This personal history combined with his time working as a storyteller for the National Leprechaun Museum, has set Nathan up with an intimate relationship to Irish myth & legend. His favourite story? ‘Deirdre of the Sorrows’ of course.
The tradition of Irish storytelling, blended with Nathan’s contemporary cinematic-pop has created a new link between the past & the present. ‘Deirdre of the Sorrows’ has been given new life & in Nathan’s own words:
“At the very least, if the song does anything, I’d hope it makes people curious about our stories.”
With five more tracks left to be released, & a circus-musical film on the horizon, Nathan Mac has almost no time to lose. With Joni Copeland, Brian Dwyer, Digietal , Chiara Viale, & Heather Kelly by his side, the Pennywish record label is quickly becoming a force in its own right.
