Brķan Folkies supporting IRA (307* d) RE: Folkies supporting IRA 09 Jul 06


I would hate to think that the only reason I play music is to get drunk and have a good time. I play music because it makes my life richer and hopefully enrichens others lives. If I was spending my free time hanging aroung a group of angry hypocrites with murder in their eyes, I would probably find another place to play. I don't think KEVIN BARRY is a particularlly bad song. The melody is a good one and the story is quite accurate. Kevin Barry certainly didn't start the atrocities and his death, if anything only exacerbated them.   It does matter who the singer is and the audience. I have a friend who sings a very nice version of it that sounds powerful in a quiet moment with a proper listening audience at the end of a party.
