Ian Prowse - My Name Is Dessie Warren (2015)

I always love finding songs that tell a story, especially when they are grounded in real life. Ian Prowse on his latest album has a wee cracker of a song called My Name Is Dessie Warren that tells a tale of a man who stood up for the rights of building workers in the 1970's who was jailed by a Government afraid of his influence!

Ian Prowse manages to capture the whole sorrid tale in 4 and a half minutes leaving us with a defient Dessie Warren, who is not a number but a name, standing tall!
