The Song Thief
BBC Radio 4 - Feb 2024
five x15 minute episodes
An eerie tale of forgotten songs and vengeful spirits by Belfast author Colin Carberry (Good Vibrations). Read by Aoibhéann McCann (Blue Lights).

‘The Song Thief’ follows Harry Probyn on his journey across Ireland to find Aislinn Byrne, the woman who started his song-writing career. After recording her sing years before in Ireland, Harry stole her song ‘Bluebell Wood’. He shared it with the world and made his fortune. Now penniless and on the run from the violent Shanks family, Harry must return to Ireland and find a new hit song.

Featuring traditional folk music from the BBC Archives recorded on location in Ireland and America in the 1950s.
