Percy French, in his day, was one of Ireland’s greatest, most popular and most enduring song-writers and entertainers. His light-hearted songs, affectionately parodying rural Irish life remain popular to this day. On his debut album ‘David Larkin Sings Percy French: With A Toot On The Flute And A Twiddle On The Fiddle!!!’ David brings the legacy of Percy French right back into the limelight.
Using his unique singing style and performative abilities with superb accompaniment he rejuvenates some of the best known French ballads, his rousing interpretations emphasising the theatrical shenanigans, humour, rhythmic delight and narrative of the songs. In tonight’s show David and accompanying musicians showcase some of these songs.
