He's got a strong North of England accent - very attractive, and I love the way it shortens the phrasing.

Far from a strong North of England accent,m I would have said a Southern Irish accent.
The poster, Lissadell 1916 says it's his version of the song.

So who is Lissadell 1916?

Cheers

By Southern Irish you mean someone from Cork or Kerry? Eh?

No, I'm Irish, living in Ireland all my life, and I assure you that he has a North of England accent.

His profile says he is 49 and his hometown is London.
But he certainly has Irish and Scots friends and his music taste seems to be strongly Irish rebel.
Don't recognise the voice though.

says "My version, why? Just because I love it!"

This is very difficult to decipher. May be someone else's recording that s/he (Lissadell) has claimed as her/his favourite.

In any case it is wonderful rich recording. And now I love it too. So I sent Lissadell a question in Youtube. Maybe we will get an answer.

I live in the North of England, certainly not from rahnd here

I dont think he is from North East of England, seems to me he is probably born in Ireland and maybe living in UK somewhere. I thought accent Irish!!

Yes, I'd say he has Irish parents or grew up with lots of Irish neigbhours, but his phrasing and accent are recognisably English. It's lovely to hear these songs newly interpreted, and in such a beautiful singing voice.

I had this message from a mate in Saudi.
"... there is an excerpt from Jim's latest album (not released yet) on youtube. Go to youtube and type "jim hanlon remembrance day".

I had a session with him at the weekend and he's singing better than ever. His latest songs are all superior to most of his other albums."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H842pbmuDEg

( End of message )

I only divulge because Jim Hanlon ( who I don't know ) and I'm certainly not doing a roundabout publicity !!!!! sounds hellish like the man in question .
Could be just a coincidence - or some wag will write that they don't sound like each other - but I think it's quite a good likeness.
Cheers Betsy

Had response from Lissadell on my youtube account. He is English. It is him singing, playing and it was recorded in his bedroom.

I have invited him to join us in this thread and provided the link.

Sounds like some lads up Kent County, New Brunswick, Canada that I know. Give them more ale and they sound more "Irish".

Sorry if that sounds flippant, but it's true.

In any case, it's kinda fun to guess and certainly to listen to such a fine voice.

Definitely not Dave. Not gentle enough or laid back enough.

He's obviously learnt it from an Irish recording hence the copied accent. I'd also say northern English, but no recognisable northern accent there. Vaguely familiar, nicely phrased, good backing track, nice visuals, pleasant voice.

To be honest the nearest I could get in little nuances was either Mick McMcGarry or Malcolm Storey but the backing was putting me off. Both of these are from my own home town Hull which is perhaps why I couldn't pinpoint the accent. It's always much harder to pinpoint your own accent especially when it's disguised in some way.

Come on, Mr Nobody, are you from Hull, or Leeds perhaps?
