Thread Name: Paul Brady's version of Arthur McBride
Subject: RE: Paul Brady's version of Arthur McBride
I'm late to this Paul Brady thread, but just have to jump in with this: Paul's "Arthur McBride" is what sucked me into this whole folk thing in 1989. Kathleen Biggins on Fordham U.'s WFUV in NYC (back before she went to New Age Celtic) played it for her Christmas show, I had the tape recorder going, and the rest is my history. In reading all the strands of this thread, I don't recall one negative voice, which is amazing for such an contentious crowd.
