Subject: Sands Family Recordings
From: GUEST,Jimmy Mac

Hello to all in this fount of great wisdom and knowledge. For some time I've been trying to get my hands on Sands Family recordings. I know they still record and tour very successfully, particularly in Europe and have made over a dozen albums as a group, apart from quite a few solo CDs by Tommy, Ben and Colum, which are marginally easier to locate. Any sources for recent Family recordings? I first heard them in New York in early 1970s but not sure if they still cross the Atlantic other than on solo missions.

I think they still record etc. I remember the beautiful voice of Anne, the sister. There was another brother, Eugene, I think, who was killed in an accident. He was (I think) a whiz on the mandolin. I saw them several times when I was at a convention in Halifax..mid-70's I guess. I know there is a web site so just do a google search. mg

Or else, try this. Should get you to Colum Sands' mail order business. The eMail addy is goodsongs@aol.com (sorry, I've mislaid my instructions for eMail clickies). I'm just now looking forward to an old LP he promised to send me when the Sands Family was doing a gig in Kiel recently. Great musicians, very nice people, all of them!
