Subject: Review: Len Graham's book on Joe Holmes
From: GUEST,John Moulden
Date: 27 Feb 12 - 07:59 AM

I recently reviewed Len Graham's book Joe Holmes 'Here I am amongst you': Songs, Music and Traditions of an Ulsterman (Dublin, 2010) in Folk Music Journal (2012). I regret that careless reading on my part caused the review to fall short of the standards I would expect.

I stated categorically that the note for song 35, Johnny Doyle, had explained that Joe Holmes had sung only five verses and that the book's compiler had added a further verse without explanation. This is not true – the explanation was there and I missed it. Under these circumstances, I feel I would have dealt more lightly with the book's other, slight, failings and, certainly, I would have spent fewer words in pointing them out.

I owe Len Graham and the readers of my poorly balanced review an apology which I now offer.

Amazing. A critic who admits to an error. All the best to you Mr. Moulden.
