I have been watching an event about the correspondence to and from Burns.
When the man himself was asked why he chose to write in Scots when everyone else understands english, he says ‘english has no words for a Bonnie sweet saunsie lass’.
Good on him, defender of his traditions.
Have you ever sung any Burns?
A vegetarian haggis and some amber bead , whilst reciting as much of Tam O’ Shanter as i can remember, is now long over due.
Och aye the noo
Hello, Christy Moore and friends of. A handful of listens now of Flying Into Mystery brings to mind a term I read describing a person’s life during later years: Perfect imperfection.
I don’t yet require hearing devices, but have been wondering if a pocket remote can dampen intrusive sounds. Some here seem convinced yelling through masks is needed in order to be heard.
Thankyou for recommending the 1916 portraits and lives book, illustrated by David Rooney. It arrived here yesterday with the very patient postman, it weighs a ton and is a thing of beauty.
The pictures are beautiful, I hope I will see the originals next time I’m in Dublin.
Hi Christy, just read a great article (you’re mentioned) about Mary Coughlan ‘A Woman’s Heart trio Ride on’ Love her music and have been to see her a a number of times. Last time was during the West Belfast Festival in 2016 when she raised the roof of Clonard Monastery with Ride On. Knocking on Heaven’s door again about duets and wondering if you have ever sang Jimmy MacCarthy’s song with her. Would love front row seats for that. Mary
BBC4 – ‘My family, the holocaust and me’…totally harrowing, but such an important programme.
A time never to be forgotten.
Fantastic Rebecca, thanks. Lots of love for Planxty today :
My name is Emer Rafferty, I am an environmentalist and climate activist from Armagh. There is a climate change event on in Armagh Marketplace 15th March which young people will be speaking at, a very important event it will be. We are looking for a musical artist who has a background in writing about the beauty of our land, the urgent action needed by all levels of society and how the clock is winding down.
Raising awareness of this global catastrophe that is upon us is crucially needed because many people still cannot see the truth of the situation. As you say in my favourite song “ Hey old man, what did you do?
We were depending on you”. We would be ever so grateful to have your talent and message present.
a little bit late but I’d like to thank you for this amazing evening in Vicar St. It felt so good to be back here and see you after all this time live. The audience didn’t sound like half. It was great. It such a difference to concerts in Germany.
Thanks to the whole crew for making it happen. Stay well.
Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly and giving me such reassurance , Warm regards , Jimmy !
