StephenH Why aren't the Corries taken seriously (95* d) RE: Why aren't the Corries taken seriously 13 Aug 18


Well, they always appealed to me, even admitting that I found them verging on the cute once in a while. On the other hand, I love their renditions of "The Roving Journeyman" using full matchboxes as percussion, or "I Will Go" using the twin bodhran accompaniment.
I thought the combination of the bodhran and what's listed on the lp as a '28-string guitar' on "Kishmul's Galley" gave the song a certain majesty, and their version of Robin Willimason's "October Song" remains an absolute favourite of mine.
I never regretted purchasing the half-dozen of their lps still in my
possession.
