Lyrics by Jonathan Swift, 1667-1745, satires of the time that are exactly relevant today: songs about financial bubbles, tyrants and corporate and government greed. Sung by the great British folk singer Eliza Carthy, with the world's foremost new music flautist, Robert Dick, violist, and Stacey Shames on harp, composer Dave Soldier adapts the Celtic music tradition and the classical avant garde for a night of music that is both ancient and for the future.
