Thread Name: Anne Byrne: What does she now?
Subject: RE: Anne Byrne: What does she now?
She could sing solo, but her own instrument play was not enough to carry the voice, so she mostly had a male accompanist. He did the instrument, she did the singing.
Paddy Roche, Jesse Owens are two names who played with her.
The one time I heard her life she did at the end a duett singing 'Whisky in the jar' with the young Johnny McEvoy to a German audience that went wild. I still have the tape and I think both must still rue they did it.
I have three LPs, some of the material comes on more than one LP.
I'll have to check at home for a songlist that is longer than just three titles: Bonnie Irish boy, Croppy boy, D'Arcy Farrow,
