Joe Hurley: The House That Horse Built (Let the Great World Spin)

Joe Hurley is a big-hearted singer-songwriter who wrote and recorded a short CD based on "Let The World Spin," the National Book Award-winning novel by his friend Colum McCann. The novel and Hurley’s songs tell the story of Till, a New York City prostitute who is full of fire but takes her life in a final act of defiance. Hurley’s songs are edgy, harrowing and moving, much like his muse and protagonist in this most unusual project.
