GUEST,Tom Folklore: 'The Singer's Club' (64* d) RE: Folklore: 'The Singer's Club' 27 Aug 09


Goodness, and I had begun to think that nobody else was interested !!!

Thanks to all who have shared their memories, especially Jim Carroll for that marvellous Poem/Ballad.
An acquaintenance suggests that a pub on Kilburn High Road called "The Rifle Volunteer" may have been one venue in 50/60s ??
I met Seamus Ennis once myself and can vouch for the veracity of Jim's verse 2 above about Seamus' love of "the black stuff" I don't remember leaving him !!!!
I met Joe Heaney twice and each time he started a row with others and I was obliged to leave !!! He was a marvellous storyteller though, as well as singer of "Sean Nos" well,, both were , weren't they ?
