Thread Name: Grehan Sisters Recordings
Subject: RE: Grehan Sisters Recordings
Bill, various cuts from their album are scattered all over the place. One recording that I know of contains most of them. The person to get in touch with here is Snuffy. He is the resident expert on the Grehan Sisters. I have been meaning for some time to make a thread which brings together all the things we have talked about on here. Maybe this will stir me into action ~~ maybe not. :-)

In short, here are the ones I know of:

My Uncle's In The Dail
On the Galtymore Mountains
The Fairy Boy
The Lake Of Coolfin
The Orange And The Green
The Wexford Massacre
Tommy McDonagh
The Lonely Banna Strand
The Wexford Massacre
The Black Velvet Band
Henry Joy
Gallagher's Frolics/Leitram Jig (inst)
The Donegal Reel (inst)

Do a Mudcat search for each of those titles and you will find lyrics and discussions for most. Scattered about here and there in the threads are discussions of the Grehan Sisters.

Most if not all of the above are from their 1967 album. Hopefully Snuffy will be along before too long to straighten it out.

Heh, just before posting I saw Arkie's comment. I will still defer to Snuffy and a couple of other Mudcatters whose names I cannot recall as being better versed in their music. I know some do know them and their current whereabouts.

About where to find the recordings, I will make a list of sources later.
