It is funny that you should ask? They were supposed to play at our folk club in NYC about 1980 and they didn't turn up. When I asked their agent about it, he told me they had fallen in love (or maybe somthing else) with a couple of lassies in Georgia or South Carolina. I never did get to meet them but I really did like their demo tape... great straight-on, no frills folk music.

Are they still in the sunny Southland?

All the best,
Dan

Larry divides his time between Canada and Germany but also has spent a lot of time in recent years in Kerry, Ireland...their mother was from Glenbeigh. Terry lived in Killorglin, Co. Kerry, until a few months ago but has now returned to England...don't know where. They played for some time with a Tralee-based band called Spalpeen, then as a duo for awhile but I think they haven't played together for some years now. Terry used to play regularly in pubs around the Killorglin and Killarney area up to last year (2003). Their music was, as some one said above, straight ahead and no frills, but well performed and good to listen to. When he was on form Terry was an absolutly dazzling banjo player...I first came across him in the '60's when he was still a teenager and even then he was amazing. It would be great to see them get together again...in the meantime I wish them well.
P.S...as far as I remember they spell it "Mathews"...might be wrong, though.

The last time I saw them was, I think, in the early 80's at a festival in Moergestel, Netherlands. The first day they performed as "The Mathews Brothers" and the next day they were joined by Tony Wilson & Mick Doonan (Doonan Family Band)and were announced as Mathews' Wilson & Doonan. From both line-up's i have an LP and they are really good. The Mathews Brothers - A Kiss in the Morning early (1978). The otherone is called: Mathews. Wilson. Doonan (1981).

Had a soft spot for both of them, but especially Terry. would appreciate any contact nos etc.

I'm also glad to here they are both still alive and kicking :-)

They played in Stoke-on-Trent quite a few times, in the 70's, and I saw them each time (brilliant each time - great fun and always full of enthusiasm). They stayed at my parents house after one gig and the next day we had an impromptu set down the local pub :-)

Didn't see them for a while after that and then I was on hols in Scotland and saw a sign saying they were playing in Fort William so called in to see them (bought a copy of "Kiss in the morning early" signed by both the lads. My son's, both musicians, love the album :-)

This is interesting as the earliest I remember is that they lived in Wakefield West Yorkshire and I saw probably one of their earliest gigs at Barnsley Civic Hall

Tig is from Doncaster and of course Mick Doonan now lives in Wakefield

Always wondered what happened to them

They came up in conversation with a 'folk friend' this evening and it's great to find some info on the web.

I saw them in Nov 1971 at a folk club in Matlock. They started off the session with what could only be described as Les Dawson does folk - brilliantly out of tune and sync. After about a minute they laughed and swapped instruments - needless to say the impact was made! A brilliant evening.

I saw them in the early 70s in our university folk club (Bradford). They were really enjoyable. They were very complimentary about my singing too. I hadn't been singing floor spots very long. I always have a soft spot for performers who compliment my singing (or storytelling). Good to reminisce about them.

Fuzzy , Look up " MUIRSHEEN DURKIN " in Mudcat Lyrics for your song.

As for Larry and Terry , they " peaked " too early in their musical lives , fortunately I saw them many times , and had many a pint with them when they were at their peak.
Good luck to 'em wherever they are I'm sure their respectiove skills couldn't have diminished - they were outstanding.

Hi all.

My name is Michael - I am the younger brother of Terry and Larry. Not a professional musician but I do play the Irish flute in the odd session.

Both Larry and Terry are still playing. Larry is still playing the fiddle, guitar and singing. Now though he is based in Hamburg with a band of his own (www.larrymathews.de)whilst Terry is still plucking the bango, mandolin and guitar down in Kerry.

Playing in sessions around the place, I still come across a lot of people who have fond memories of the two (as well as with Mick Doonan and Tony Wilson), which I always relay back to them.

So, any messages you might have, feel free to either pass through me or go directly to Larry's website. I generally chat with either one of them once or twice aweek.

All the best.

Michael Mathews

Hi Michael,
The personal message is exactly what it means, for example (you or I) mightn't want to show (on this thread) our Email Addresses, telephone Nos personal details etc., and the PM is the best way of exchanging etc.Firstly you'll need to join Mudcat (there's no charge or heavy commitment).It (appears) you haven't joined because I have tried sending to - Mat - the name you used a couple of posts previously and the system doesn't recognise you.
Go back to the first Mudcat Page and at the top of the Page there is a part "Membership."
Just fill that bit in – there's nothing sinister in giving a few details – it (sometimes Joe !! ) helps the Organisers in stopping loonies entering the site , or posting dodgy material – and then you're up and running .

How's That?

Mick Haywood and I were talking about them at Whitby as neither of us had heard of them for a while.

Larry was over last March. He stayed in my flat here in Sheffield and we went off to a few of the numerous sessions together. I know he called over to see Mick Doonan and a few of his old friends from around the Wakefield area.

You should drop him a line - he will be pleased to hear from you.

Thanks for your help Betsy. Is Muirsheen Durkin a real place ? You've got to understand I'm just an English twit. Speaking of which, I actually saw the Matthews Brothers in 1975 at McTavish's Kitchen, Fort William, not 1976 as earlier stated. The confusion was caused by the fact that Scotland actually had two hot summers in a row, if anybody can believe that.

I don't think it's a place – he's singing the song to someone of that name.

Google this ….http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muirsheen_Durkin


Wikipedia isn't the greatest reference tool , but it seems to fit with my understanding of the contents of the song .

I remember the days of The Mathews brothers,mainly in late 70s Arundel,Sussex,where they were very popular, but also at the Burnt Post in Coventry with Doonan and Wilson: what a great band!I particularly liked 'Bonnie light horseman'(with plaintive tin whistle),'Rambling suiler','The Galbally farmer' and 'Binnorie',in fact almost everything on the 2 albums mentioned,and learnt some of them myself.A colleague and I sang 'Step it out Mary' at a school staff 'do'!
The performances I saw felt very special;great vocals and fantastic instrumentals.

Yes. Very much alive and kicking in my case. Still singing - banging my head against a brick wall, bur still at it. If they ever give an award for sheer bloody-minded persistance, I'm in with a chance. Often wondered what you were up to. I thought you had married Terry. Fancy you showing up on here! If you look at my website, you can hear some of what I'm doing, and see some videos (the beard is gone now!). It would be nice to hear from you. I'm not putting my email address on here, but if you join Mudcat - which costs nothing and doesn't commit you to anything - you can sent a personal (i.e. private) message - a PM.
Alternatively, if you get on the website, there's an info@ link which enables you to email me. You'd want to do it soon; the website expires next month, and will be getting replaced, but I might not be able to get the same domain name.
Can't tell you anything about Larry or Terry though; all I've heard is what's on this thread, which pops up now and again. Billy Bracken is still going - now living in Ireland. And you'll remember George, with whom I did the residency in '79. That's Gina now. The videos were recorded in her place in Halifax. And you may or may not have heard that Stellan died a couple of years back. Oh, and McT's burned down a couple of years ago also!
Get in touch. John.

I saw them two times at McTavish Kitchen in Fort William. In july 1977, they played some songs amidst others bands. In 1979, they were the bosses! I bought (and keep preciously) their "A Kiss In The Morning Early" LP, including some fine songs like "Step It Out Mary". They were very friendly with their audience, and talk to everybody after the show.

I saw the Mathews Brothers at Poynton Folk Club during the late 70's and it was a pity they only made one record. Larry is traceable but try as I might can't find anything on Terry and neither cd's or LP's are easily searched for. If anyone comes up with anything?
