Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Three Nights and a Sunday (Matt McGinn)
I am going back to 1961 and I remember the man himself singing this song on a BBC programme that featured Nadia Cattouse.
The programme was a weekly folk item and various folkies had their first exposure to to "the rude and scoffing multitudes", my oul memory also conjures up another name, Steve Benbow. Any takers?. Ard Mhacha.

Aye, that would be The London Folk Song Cellar, w/ Robin Hall & Jimmie MacGregor. They'd Matt, Nadia, Benbow, the Watersons, Martin Carthy, Lyn & Graham McCarthy from Oz, Packie Manus Byrne, Alex Campbell before he killed himself with the drink, Gareth & Elinedd(sp?) Francis and I can't remember how many others. What a bugger that BBC never issued the recordings.
