Thread Name: Linen Industry Songs
Subject: RE: Linen Industry Songs
Just to add to what Jim has written; the American Folklife Center site held a series of talks in 2008 on the theme Rediscover Northern Ireland, which included an hour long talk by Maurice Leyden which is still available to view as a webcast via Real Player I am a wee weaver: Weaving and Singing in Northern Ireland.
Appletree Press announced in 2009 the forthcoming publication of a book by Maurice Leyden The Linen Workers, but I haven't seen any copies for sale anywhere yet. I hope this thread will do something to revive interest in the project, so that the book can be published, as I for one would certainly love to read it.
