Here are Carrl and Janie Myriad, while it must have been them called to the stage in the recording, I don't think it was Carrl singing.

Could be Declan Affley, but on listening to both side by side, I'm beginning to wonder if it isn't Colin Dryden singing himself.

Thanks Brian, the name 'Karl' matches and Myriad sounds a little like the un-inteligible last name on the recording, I'll see what I can find.

My mind (such as it is) has thrown up the name Karl Myriad (Myrriad? Myriadd?). Any help? I know Declan Affley sang 'Ned of the Hill',and very well too!

Thanks to Judy Pinder, I now know the song is Eamonn an Chnoic, that might narrow down who was singing this in the 1970s?

I spent today in the National Library of Australia listening to some Colin Dryden recordings. Some fabulous content recorded by Mike Eves.

However, while listening to a separate recording of Colin Hosting a song workshop at the 1970 National Folk Festival in Port Jackson, I was struck by another song about 60 minutes into the recording (I don't think it is Colin singing).

The sound quality is not great, so I was hoping someone here might be able to place the song and the singer.

Before the song I can make out 'welcome Karl and Jennny ?? to the stage from Melbourne'. The preamble given by the singer indicates that it is about an Irish outlaw called Edmund from 1688, somehow connected to William of Orange.

The song is in Gaelic and the tune bears some similarity to 'Jock Stewart'.

Content is available in person at the library here.

Thanks in advance,

Daniel,
