Sorry Cj - didn't see this
You can here the Clare singers we recorded on the Clare County Library website - Google 'Carroll, Mackenzie Collection at Clare County Library'
There is some in the 'Irish Traditional Music Archive' site - Clare singers and some Travellers
Mary Delaney, the Irish Traveller can be googled singing 'What Will We Do' and 'Buried in Kilkenny' - both well worth seeking out
There's another site on 'The Carroll Mackenzie recordings I stumbled across last month - no idea who put it up but I'm delighted they did
Musical Traditions carries two double CD of our work ' Around the Hills of Clare' (Clare singers) and 'From Puck to Appleby (Travellers)
We are depositing our collectio in Limerick Uni's 'World Music Department' - there is talk of setting up a Travellers website - all in the air so far
Unfortunately Walter Pardon and some other Norfolk singers reside in a locked vault in the National Library on Euston Road - and have done for several decades - no money and not enough interest to put them up

Can I say that if anybody is interested I'm more than happy to send people any of our recordings via Dropbox or PCloud - there are a number of radio programmes on our work, particularly with Travellers, and also a rather good (he boasted) double-programme on the work of Ewan MacColl that we participated in for the centenary of his birth
Feel free to ask and, if you're not a member of Mudcat, I know an
e-mail to Joe Offer will get you our contact number
