       MUSICAL TRADITIONS CLUB Spring/Summer  2010

 

 Friday 26th March    JIM MacFARLAND

  Direct from Ireland. A passionate yet subtle singer with a great

 relish for the songs of his native County Derry.   

                                              With The Rakes 

 

JIM MACFARLAND A Taste of Tradition: Mountain Streams
Jo Sem Recordings JSCD01

Jim MacFarland is a standard bearer who has immersed himself in collecting and singing. He is a stalwart of the famed Goilin Singers Club of Dublin, individually impressive and collectively formidable; great ambassadors for Irish song. Surprisingly, this is Jim's first album, however, it is well worth the wait. He does full justice to what is a fine selection and is aided, for good measure, by contributions from daughters Orla and Maria and son Seumas. His Royal Blackbird - a beautiful Irish Jacobite piece, both in text and elaborate wide-compass tune - is sung superbly as is the equally challenging Mountain Streams, which he handles with skill, sensitivity and individuality. The latter is, of course, from the singing of Brigid Tunney and her son Paddy and Jim is rigorous in his acknowledgements of these worthy sources of inspiration and shining example. Another fine song, long associated with Paddy Tunney is Lough Erne Shore, delivered in sure-footed style by Jim and son Seamus. Other highlights include The Banks of the Bann and the brooding, atmospheric, downright creepy, Reynardine. The album is enhanced by full texts, helpful prefaces by Jim and scholarly notes from the eminent folklorist/collector Tom Munnelly. In short: a fine album from a Journeyman of song.                                                                                       Geordie McIntyre ,"Living Tradition" magazine.

 

 

             Friday 9th April    JANET RUSSELL

Janet has a thrilling voice and the ability to bring out the heart of a song, be it a traditional ballad from her native Scotland or a piece making a political point. She also has a great sense of fun and excels at mouth music for dancing.  Her new CD Love Songs and Fighting Talk is out on Harbourtown HAR CD 052
