Thread Name: Paul Brady's version of Arthur McBride
Subject: RE: Paul Brady's version of Arthur McBride
The video (Echoes and Extracts) with all the rock stuff on is fascinating - showing Paul's develpoment.

Its strange to reflect on the different directions various /singersongwriters took from the 70's.

Paul going rather in the direction of Van Morrison. Christy sticking with folk but expanding the horizons - becoming the Irish Pete Seeger. Johnny MacEvoy throwing in his lot with the Country and Irish scene.
