Thread Name: John Reilly, traveller singer.
Subject: RE: John Reilly, traveller singer.
Wonder if anybody can help (not unrelated to Nick's request for women singers)
I have been trying to access recordings I stumbled across yesterday of one of the great women Traveller singers, Lucy Stewart, much unrepresented on disc.
Kenneth Goldstein issued a disc of her Child Ballads on Folkways, with a promise of a second on on non-ballads, which never appeared.
Yesterday I found what was obviously the intended album on an American site (can't remember which one, will try later), but could not get the links to play
Is anybody familiar with Kenny's work - he was a pioneer album producer in the early days
I'll go on trying and pass on anything I find

Mary Delaney was one of the 'biggest singers' we ever recorded - a superb singer with a large repertoire and a very definite veiw of what was a folk song and what was not
I've just stumbled across this - I had no idea of its existence until now - rather pleased about it
RECORDINGS of IRISH TRAVELLERS
Mary can be heard singing one of her better known songs, 'What Will We Do' here
