…more Irish Folk

It is my hope that these "…more Irish Folk" pages will continue to be updated. Currently these pages are represented by recordings in my collection and performers who have contacted me. Please inform me ("oxbownick1" AT "theballadeers" DOT "com") if have any information, pictures, web links, etc. of any Irish Folk singers, duos and groups (past or present) you'd like added to these pages. Special thanks and credit will be added as info is received.


Aengus: 1978 - Tara 2001 LP


…was formed in the late sixties featuring Dinny McLaughlin (fiddle), Bernard Heaney (guitar and vocals), Pat McCabe (accordion) and Brian McRory (banjo), although the band has featured many great musicians along the way, including Curly Coyle, Nicky Bryson and Seamus McLaughlin. In its heyday the band toured extensively in Europe, Ireland, Britain and America and appeared on many television shows including the Late Late Show and The Embankment. They released two recordings, "Aileach"and "Ard Rí" and had a big hit with Phil Coulters song ‘Lullaby’. During the last few years they have performed regularly, delighting audiences and re-kindling fond memories among old friends.

"My father first saw me from his cell window, during the civil war. I was born after he was captured and when I was six weeks old my mother brought me up to the jail and held me up, on the road outside for him to see, from the cell window."
