流浪的龙

艺术给予我们自由。

      The Chieftains,酋长乐队。爱尔兰国宝级乐队,丁磊大叔喜欢的“宇宙最强乐队”。很好奇爱尔兰不到500万人,居然拥有那么多优秀的乐队--小红莓、恩雅、英格玛、U2,还有一大票文学家(萧伯纳、叶芝、乔伊斯、王尔德)。那都柏林一定是个文艺之都了。

    这首《 the star of county down》,一般译作“道宁郡之星”,更浪漫的名字叫“南方城镇的星子”。浓厚的凯尔特风格,怡人的风笛声。梦回中世纪的小镇,天真无邪的姑娘。

Near banbridge town in the county down

One morning last july,

From a boreen green came a sweet colleen
