Subject: RE: Tune Req: req. recording or music for 'Maggie
It's just come to me. "Nora" was written by poet/dramatist Sean O'Casey. It was featured on an LP released in the 80s called "The Green Crow Craws, the songs of ...". Paul Brady was the musical director and guitarist on it but the songs were sung by a actor. "Nora" was based on the earlier "Maggie". O'Casey was in the habit of borrowing from the tradition in this fashion. He has a version of "Easy and Slow" as well. more love, john.
