Crimson Gown is my latest single and available on all platforms. The song is co written by myself and Fiach Moriarty and Miriam Ingram added some beautiful harmonies. Also accompanied by Pete Meighan on Guitar and a wonderful string section.
The song is about two Irish actresses, Margaret Woffington and George Anne Bellamy who supposedly came to blows on the London stage over David Garrick a famous English actor in the early 1700’s, who they both had an affair with.
Margaret Woffington along with Garrick was one of the principal actors at the restoration theatre in Smock Alley at the time and performed plays by Sheridan and Shakespeare. The front cover design is courtesy of Martin McCann and you can see more at www.martinmccanndesign.com
