Thread Name: Paul Brady's version of Arthur McBride
Subject: RE: Paul Brady's version of Arthur McBride
Hi, just stumbled on the site.
For those who don't know it, I thoroughly recommend Martin Carthy's arrangement of this tremendous song on his Prince Heathen disc; I arranged it for guitar many years ago off a Swarbrick tape I had; amazed to hear a fiddler sawing away at it in the back room of a music ship in Newcastle, England recently!
By the way, a snippet of a WW1 recruiting song sung by Terry Woods on the Pogues If I should fall from grace with god album probably has its roots in Arthur.. the sentiment is the same for sure.
Now, I must search out a copy of this Paul Brady guy's album!
