Thread Name: Ottilie Patterson query
Subject: RE: Ottilie Patterson query
Dermod, fascinating stuff. I had a mail only today saying that Ottilie Paterson is living in Scotland now and sadly is in poor health
However, I don't know the accuracy of this. She would have had her 71st birthday on 31st of Jan this year. The mail also noted a CD called "Ottilie Sings The Irish" recorded in a pub in Newtownards or in Comber, her home town.(Apparently not to be confused with the 45rpm EP she did in 1959 called "Ottilie Swings the Irish"!)Well, bless her wherever she is, I don't think she really got anywhere as much credit as she deserves as a singer,but her singing certainly gave me a lot of pleasure.
