Jim Carroll Sam Henry's Songs of the People (21) RE: Sam Henry's Songs of the People 02 May 19


Couldn't agree more Vic - Len was head and shoulders above them all
The irony was that the first programme included several excellent singers - as interviewees, Brian Mullen, Maurice Leyden and Sean Corcoran spring to mind, but there is a rich seam of representative singers they could have drawn from, all who have used Sam Henry's songs and sing them with skill and understanding
THere are also a few younger singers who have direct link with some of the major traditional singers - from Mary Ann Carolan's and Geordie Hanna's families... a far suitable follow-up to the 'folk-bling' that was presented.
I'm often stunned at the quality of some of the programmes on song and music coming from The Northern Counties - covering both the performances and the more serious research aspects
Hopefully, this will continue
Jim
