“In today’s interconnected society, the world feels a whole lot smaller than it really is. Yet, the fact remains that sometimes great distances or large physical barriers do exist between people,” Goldrick explains. “So in ‘England Has My Man,’ to concentrate on the 120 KM ferry journey across the Irish Sea and to capture the imagery along the way reveals to us the real-lived physical gulf between countries and people which we may not fully appreciate when we hop onto a plane or log onto Skype.”
Focusing on those “great distances”, O’Neill remarks, “Emigration is ancient and very much alive. It has been a wondrous, fruitful, heartbreaking and lonesome reality for millions of families worldwide for centuries. It’s been a subject which has inspired countless pieces of work in Irish folklore and song, which I think is a language of its own and a medicine for the alone.”
In just about a week Lisa & the band head across the way for some gigs stateside!
