Tríona Ní Dhuibhir: Jezebel
“I’ve seen Tríona unleash her inner vamp on cabaret tunes and can’t wait to see what she does to country songs.”
– Festival Director
Annie took the name of Jezebel for twenty years. She roamed from town to town. She stitched and mended for her keep. When folks came to know her and asked who she was and where she was from, she upped and gone.
Close to the town of Belzoni near Yazoo City Annie met Mary. They share their stories. For the first time since leaving home, Annie spoke her real name. Songstress Tríona Ní Dhuibhir tells the story of Mary and Annie through a back catalogue of country-tinged classics. This musical performance is inspired by the legend of Jezebel, historically a queen and peacemaker – later demonised as the wanton woman, but in folktales of America’s deep South – Jezebel is the Devil’s wife.
