I've been researching the song: Bread and Fishes. On this site the author is listed as Alan Bell with Maypole Music the publisher. On other sites the composer is listed as Tommy Makem. I'm very interested to solve this dilemma and know who actually owns the song. Any further info from anyone?

Good excuse for a promo for a friend:
Seamus Kennedy did a lovely recording of Bread and Fishes on his Goodwill to Men CD.
You can hear a brief clip of Alan Bell singing this song at codamusic.co.uk.
And an article about Alan Bell at folkmusic.net

The first time I heard 'Bread and Fishes' was on Songs of Praise.. years ago. It came from Fylde.

I took ages to find the words. In the end I found the Fylde Festival website and emailed Alan. And I bought his song book.

Ive also been to a workshop day 'Up North' I think run by Alan. I acted as driver for a disabled friend of mine who was running the Bodhran workshop. I managed to sneak onto the melodian workshop with my english concertina and learned a couple of tunes.

TWO major problems - People who learn songs from CD/ Album , and only credit the SINGER as the source , and the PRO Performers who change one word in someone else's song , and copyright it !
