Subject: RE: Where is 'Laugh and Half-Daft' (Wales)?
Geoff,

Thank you very much for taking the trouble to post the lyrics. I appreciate it very much. I thank you also on behalf of my friends, Colin Smiley and Paddy Connelly, who will be delighted as they want to add it to their performance repertoire. Thanks also for Cran's source. I have heard a couple of recordings by Mary Ann Carolan in the Topic series - good stuff.

I have enjoyed reading your excellent reviewa in Musical Traditions, particularly the one for Dessie O'Halloran.   I have not heard Cran but, when searching for this song, I noted that they are still active and some of their earlier material is being reissued. I shall certainly seek out a couple of albums.

Thanks again.

--Stewie.
