Subject: RE: oral tradition - 'celtic' singing in usa
Sorry to re-open an old thread but I found a question to me from Thurg that remained unanswered.
There were two George Maxwells, father and son. George the elder was Kiplings black cook. His son George, also fluent in Gaelic and a great singer in that tradition, moved from Whycocomagh to Sydney as a young man and worked at the steel plant.
