He said he'd only recently written it....performing it for the first time. Not sure it even had a title?

Can check with him at Cropredy - he suggested a few beers at the bar!

It is about the Easter rising in 1916 and I call it the "GPO & P.S", at the moment.

'An Post' is the name of the postal service of the Republic of Ireland (so their 'GPO').

Didn't look like it.

Sold out & full of the good the great.....Tom was with Ralph. He told me Billy is coming over for the tour too, so it'll really be a family affair.

Ralph played four numbers -
Hands of Joseph
A rag that I can't remember the name of, segued from the song above, so no intro.
Girl on the Jersey ferry
Ghost of Robert Johnson

On good form & in (rude?!) good health. Looking forward to the tour too.

Ralph confirms 'The PS is the post script and the song is on You tube already'. The 'PS' reference is in the last verse.

Was it the Joseph Spence tune 'Great dreams of Heaven', aka 'There will be a happy meeting in glory'? Ralph often appends it to concert performances of 'Hands of Joseph'.

Shame we didn't know Peascod, we were in A6/7 (with the Cropredy Tee shirt) maybe we should introduce a badge so we can recognize other Talkawhilers., Weren't they just the best seats ever, so comfy it was just like being at home. As for finishing time, he did mention being told by the management (somewhat tongue in cheek) that time was getting on, and it was quite an early start at 7.30, maybe they go to bed early in Peterborough.
