Phillip Daligan is the second songwriter to grace our podcast site from across the big pond, although he has been in America for about ten years where he is working as a carpenter and living on an island off the Portland Coast of Maine.
I was lucky enough to capture this song during one of Phillip's visits to Camp Dances with Armadillos at the Kerrville Folk Festival this year.
Phillip's songs are stories which may or may not be true, but are influenced by things that he has seen or done, including experiences from his life near the sea and a stint in the merchant marines.
This song, entitled Waiting, is a beautiful love ballad about that which is lost and the promise of that which is to come. He is accompanied by Robert Lindsay Nathan on lead acoustic guitar.
