New ITMA Book & CDs


'All the days of his life: Eddie Butcher in his own words: songs, stories and memories of Magilligan, Co Derry' is the latest publication in the Studies in Irish traditional music / Taighde ar cheol dúchais Éireann series from the Irish Traditional Music Archive.

This illustrated record of the life and songs of Eddie Butcher (1900–1980), an outstanding singer from Magilligan, Co Derry, brings back a vanished way of rural life and verbal entertainment. Hugh Shields (1929–2008) was teaching in Coleraine when he first met Eddie in Magilligan in 1953. Their musical friendship continued until Eddie's death. During this period Hugh recorded and published a large repertory of songs from Eddie. The words and notated music of 67 unpublished songs, together with stories and recollections, are given in this book. It is accompanied by three CDs with Eddie's singing of all the songs.

For more detailed information please see the attached press release. The book is available for purchase from the ITMA online shop.


For anyone interested, ITMA gets (ll in US dollars) $51.70+ s&h ($25.27 to US, $1687 to UK)

CAMSCO is offering it for $48.50 (including Media Mail shipping to anywhere in US) or $46 + actual shipping cost to anywhere else.

Please respond quickly if you're interested. THis is a one-shot deal.

"NObody's interested?"
A pity; it's a magnificent piece of work accompanied by 3 CDs worth of some of the best singing these islands have produced.
Would that the UK have give us something a fraction as good as a tribute to our any of our traditional singers.

This is a book and CD collection well worth having. However, the price quoted above of $1687 to the U.K is a bit heavy. For that sort of money you could take a trip to the Frank Harte Festival, have a great weekend, and pick up a copy for 36 Euro. You would still have enough change to down a few pints of Guinness, tho' maybe not as many as Darren Clarke!

There's just the decimal point missing. Shipping costs to the U.K. and the rest of Europe are €11.75 or $16.87

Ahh, a decimal pint. Never tried one of them. I'm strictly a Guinness man
