The Waterboys - Words and Music - 2013

It's the music of Mike Scott and The Waterboys and the words of W. B. Yeats, tonight at 9pm on Words & Music. See video here.

The Waterboys first shaped the poems of W. B. Yeats into song 25 years ago on Fisherman's Blues, and now a lifelong labor of love brings us a full album of that combination on An Appointment With Mr. Yeats. After its live U.S. premiere at Town Hall, we were lucky enough to have Mike Scott and bandmate Steve Wickham stop by FUV where they talked about the long-awaited project and treated us to some duo performances.
