weelittledrummer. "I bought a weird cd off a market stall, Ottilie Patterson - live album in a pub somewhere singing something like Irish trad. folk - the only title I can remember was Hello Patsy Fagan!"

I vaguely remember that album. It came out on LP, presumably sometime in the 1950s. I recall a PYE Golden Guinea reissue in the early 1960s at any rate, and it was called Ottilie's Irish Night. Ottilie was Irish, from Co. Tyrone I think, and the LP represented an attempt to recreate the kind of songs the family would have sung round the fire on a Saturday night back home.
