Nowaday's, when I hear the tune I think of Richard Thompson's words - Madonna's Wedding, lyrics at http://www.richardthompson-music.com/song_o_matic.asp?id=513

Doom? Gloom? Hilarity! I don't think he got sued.

I agree - the social context aspect was fascinating.  Devalera wanted his image of Irish music to set the tone for an independent Irish culture, but once the Dubliners, and the Chieftains got going, the genie was out of the bottle.  FWIW infinitely better in 90 mins than Folk Britannia's four hours.

So where's Folk Caledonia then?

I particularly liked the grainy images of writers such as Brendan Behan p---ed out of their brains, literally (literary?) falling around the streets of Dublin. Interesting stuff about Christy Moore, Planxty, Moving Hearts etc. I did not know about the full extent of Anne Briggs's contribution to that scene. But did anybody notice the interviews with her were filmed in the exact same spot where she did the interviews for Folk Brittania? (looks like somewhere I know in the Lake District, although I believe she lives in the Scottish Islands). It would appear like parts of the same interview were edited for two separate programmes. Anyway, no matter, that's just "anorak" observations. I also really enjoyed the programme- but why so late, even it is a weekend night?

It is on BBC4 again 4 hours from now at 01:35 on Sunday morning.

I intend to record it (on a TiVo). I currently have no means of copying it to anything else. I could have a special showing in the small hours of March 18th.

IIt would appear like parts of the same interview were edited for two separate programmes.


Come, come. The BBC wouldn't dream of doing anything like that. No, the producer took Annie to the same beach, asked her to wear exactly the same clothes, and arranged for the weather to be precisely the same as it was when the interviewed her for Folk Britannia. They even managed to stop her from growing a year older.  Wink Wink Wink

Do you wish to include facial hair in this wispy and wispy statement; there was some seriuos beards and some that it was difficult to take seriously!
