Tim - were you talking to me? Sorry if this sounds rude,but I couldn't make it out, and also I fell ill on 3 Feb.
So, if it's 'Ballad of Claudy' you're asking about - I've only ever heard the song by James Simmons himself. It was played on a German programme about Northern Ireland ages ago from an album called, I think, 'The Rostrevor Sessions'. The Sands Family were on it as well, but I think it was too early for the Fiddler's Green Festival. I'll have to go home to find out more. Maybe you could ask the Sands about the song? - Susanne
