Thread Name: Thomas McCarthy Scottish Tour in May
Subject: RE: Thomas McCarthy Scottish Tour in May
It was the 7 May gig I was thinking about. It is listed on the PDF downloadable programme, but nowhere else that I can find:

Songs and Stories of the Pavee People
with Irish Traveller Thomas McCarthy

Thu 7 May, 7.30pm (2hrs)
Scottish Storytelling Centre
£8 (£6)

Thomas McCarthy is a last bastion of the oral tradition, an Irish traveller who comes from a long line of singers and musicians who taught him many fine versions of traditional songs. His unforgettable voice and profoundly moving performances have held audiences spellbound at many folk festivals in the UK and beyond.
