Maurice, Anna and I paid a visit to the Star Folk Club in Glasgow on Tuesday night to hear The Friel Sisters in concert. What a super night’s music! My last visit to The Star was back in the mid 1980s. Hope it won’t be so long till I’m back again. We were delighted to sing a couple of songs each in the floor-spot. Thanks to Tom and Ian and everyone at The Star.
Maurice and Jane are delighted to be giving a series of Singing/Walking Tours of Lisburn and Belfast’s Linen Quarter, telling the story of Ulster Linen Industry through the folk-songs of its workers drawn from Maurice’s collection of traditional linen songs. Details of the Tours which run in Sept and Oct are on the linen biennale website;
