Sleeve Notes

BUTCH MOORE — Butch rose to national fame in 1965 when he was chosen to represent Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest in Naples where Butch, his song, "Walking the Streets in the Rain," and Ireland had a huge success'. Since then, he has appeared on the stage of the London Palladium, the Albert Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Concert Hall of Radio Free Europe and, of course, every niche and corner of Ireland.

MAEVE MULVANY — As a singer of Ireland's fighting songs, Maeve has topped the bill over all of Ireland, England, Scotland, the United States and even in Switzerland. Many of her lyrics are self-penned and her songs have added to the repertoire of many famous Irish groups, including the Clancy Brothers. Her fiery interpretation of Irish rebel songs earned her the star role in the film, "Rebellion at Easter."

Maeve and Butch first appeared as a duo in Matt Kane's in 1970 and since have appeared together at Fran O'Brien's in Washington, D. C., Jack McCarthy's Keg Room in Springfield, Massachusetts, Pat Burke's "Emerald Isle" in Chicago, and Jerry Le Faivre's "Irish House" in Ocean City, Maryland.

The Songs
