Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Arthur McBride (from Paul Brady)
Subject: RE: Paul Brady \ Arthur McBride
Sandy got in a bit before me - I too had recognised Paul's source. Carrie Grover's book is wonderful - is there any information (apart from that in the book) about her antecedants? There must have been some North Irish connection - the song she has has The July Fair at Garbo is part of a song of unionist/nationalist conflict "The July Fair in Garvagh" - Garvagh being in north County (London)derry about 16 miles south of where I live.
