Great pity that this clashes with the Wild Atlantic Shanty Festival at Rosses Point Sligo

Yes.
and a pity that the Wild Atlantic Shanty Festival at Rosses Point Sligo clashes with the Fastnet Maritime festival, the distance between the two is over 250 miles more than 5 hours drive away from each other.
I believe they both started the same year, However, treat yourself guest, you could visit both

Irish Whip 7:00 pm Hello Delia Murphy[PASS THE HAT GIG]


is a talk interspersed with songs given by her niece Carmen Cullen. She also sings Delia’s songs and is accompanied by musician Gerry Anderson.

No woman performer made a bigger impact on the Irish Entertainment scene since Delia Murphy. In the late 1930s, all through the war years, and for may years afterwards, she had the nation singing along with her in songs like The Spinning Wheel, Three Lovely Lassies from Bannion, The Moonshiner and Dan O’Hara. She was a unique personality on stage and off, and is credited with laying the groundwork for the Irish Folk Revival.

This talk is special for the following reasons:

    Hello Delia Murphy is told and Delia’s songs are performed by a family member.
    The event provides a unique slant on Irish Social History and the cultural climate of the times.
    It underlines the fearless nature of Delia Murphy as a woman and as a singer, who promoted Irish folk songs and ballads at a time it was almost impossible for a married woman with children to have a public profile, in particular in the show-business world.
    This illustrated talk allows audiences to re-connect with their past and sing along with songs much loved and fondly remembered.
    The talk explains Delia Murphy’s meteoric rise to fame and how the tradition she began has been taken up by well known ballad groups and performers, to the present day.

Last weds ON RTE ONE RADIO. A track was played of MartinCarthy singning Scrborough Fair and it was mentioned he was playing in greystones wicklow, no mention of john kirkpatrick and no mention of Ballydehob gig, So either the agent is not promoting both gigs or the presenter chose to mention only one. I am pissed off

your complaint is fair enough, Sandman, if not surprising- Bray is effectively a Dublin suburb & Ireland is even more capital-city oriented than Britain.
The current concern in rural Ireland about it is long overdue- your festival is battling against the same attitude & good for you.
