The Irish Traditional Music Archive (ITMA to the initiated) has just made the full run of a 1960's magazine called "Dublin Folk" available online. A real treat for time travellers:

Thanks Martin, reading some of those articles brought back great memories...... Sweeney's Men and the late Tom Munnelly's articles I particularly enjoyed. In 1972 Tom introduced me to Doc Boggs and Grandma Davis of Roaring River. I never looked back!!

Hi Dot!

Yes - they bring back a particular time and space, alright, don't they? At the time, I think I was still wearing polo necked jumpers, sporting horn-rimmed glasses and looking for jazz gigs… Never really listened to traditional music and song until I moved to Athlone in 1972. Not a lot of jazz in Athlone in 1972!

Regards

Very true - although tiny Kinvara, where I now live, had a Louis Stewart/Honor Heffernan/Jim Doherty gig just the other week.

The year after the Cork Jazz Festival was founded, the local Athlone Junior Chamber (of Commerce) attempted to run a copycat festival. They pulled in a few fairly local trad/Dixieland bands into, if I remember correctly, the Jolly Mariner pub. The one exception was a modern jazz group led by flautist Brian Dunning. Despite a last minute drummer, the latter were great - but the local audience couldn't make head nor tail of it and wandered off looking for "real jazz"… I think Junior Chamber reverted to Table Quizzes the following year!
Regards

Martin, you mentioned Brian Dunning. Louis Stewart who regularly played gigs for us in the early days of Alternative Entertainments, used tell this story. Back in the early eighties, James Galway when on a visit to Dublin phoned Brian Dunning's home and got talking to Brian's mother who told him Brian wasn't at home. She had no idea who James Galway was but after they chatted politely for a while she eventually asked 'Was it about flute lessons?'

You may not have had jazz in Athlone in 1972 but I think you probably had Mrs Flannery!!!

Yep, Mrs. Flannery - or rather her offspring Tom McHale - was what started me off!

I'm on a Mac (using Safari) - which is working fine. Clicking on the page enlarges it and the cursor keys turn the pages over. May be a Flash related problem? Is this ITMA only site you have problems with?

Yes, Martin - when I use the cursor buttons the next page appears for about half a second. I can view it but only if I right click on it as soon as it appears: then I ca read it with a drop-down menu overlapping it.

I remember Tom McHale playing in Sean's Bar & nobody listening until he played 'Amazing Grace' which was a Hit Parade number at the time.
Who's Mrs Flannery? (I abroad 70s to 00s).

Mrs Flannery's was the name of a folk club in Tullamore. Tom McHale, who played there regularly, started his own club in Athlone (in the Jolly Mariner) a few years before his untimely death. Tony Holleran, a fine singer, took over the running of the club subsequently. There is still an Athlone Folk Club, to the best of my knowledge, which is the direct descendant.

Many's the night (and Sunday morning) I spent in Sean's Bar!

Regards
