I've often wondered about John Reilly the "distant relation," whose rendition of FALSE LANKUM (issued on Songs of the Irish Travellers, available from ITMA) is perhaps my favorite recorded ballad performance. He was young enough in 1974 that he might still be alive today—does anyone know what became of him, or if there are other recordings of his singing preserved somewhere?
