Two brothers and two sisters from Kilkenny make up the "Ormonde Folk". Peter, Eamonn, Margaret and Mary Brady have been singing together for four years, and have made many broadcasts for R.T.E., including television appearances in "Ballad Street" and the popular "Riordans". Last year they came second in the Eamonn Andrews Competition, and won the "Festival of Ireland" ballad competition in Wexford. They have recently made a very successful tour of the major cities of the United States, and will be there on a return visit at the time of this record's release.
A note from Irish television Personality Shay Healy: "This record was recorded 'live' on a Sunday afternoon in "The Old Sheiling" hotel in Dublin. Someone found me a vodka, and I willingly introduced The Ormonde Folk to a more than lively audience.
They didn't let me down, and if I told you that this record is more than pleasant listening, then I would be telling you a profound truth.
The Ormonde Folk don't hit you with a bang; they wrap themselves around you like a warm, musical overcoat that I would be happy to wea'r anywhere …
And now, if you would pass me my overcoat, I think I'll spend a few musical moments."
