Subject: The Fethard Lifeboat Disaster, Ireland 20 Feb 1914
From: Felipa
Date: 22 Feb 22 - 04:01 PM

http://irelandbyways.co.uk/saltees-keeraghs-co-wexford/ "[On 20] February 1914 'The Mexico', a Norwegian barque, ran aground in stormy seas. The Fethard lifeboat was launched, but both vessels were smashed to pieces by mighty waves. Nine of the 14 crew were swept to their deaths; the remaining five joined the eight surviving sailors on the exposed reef , where they remained miserably clinging to rocks while the storm continued unabated.

Several attempts to rescue them were foiled before two brave men, Bill Duggan and Jim Wickham of the Rosslare Fort lifeboat, took a dinghy and ferried the survivors two at a time from their ice cold rocks. The operation needed 6 trips in stormy seas to bring all to safety, but on the second of these, the dinghy was holed. For the remaining trips the sea was kept out by a loaf of bread wrapped in oilskins, plugged into the opening.

The incident is known as THE FETHARD LIFEBOAT DISASTER
There were poems and song composed in the aftermath of the disaster, including
THE FETHARD LIFEBOAT CREW and THE MEXICO

Malcolm X gets a mention in the Phil Ochs song, LOVE ME, I'M A LIBERAL


I cried when they shot Medgar Evers
Tears ran down my spine
And I cried when they shot Mr Kennedy
As though I'd lost a father of mine
But Malcolm X got what was coming
He got what he asked for this time
So love me, love me, love me; I'm a liberal.

Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come" could do as song to commemorate Malcolm X. https://variety.com/2021/music/opinion/sam-cooke-a-change-is-gonna-come-civil-rights-black-history-month-1234900231/

A CHANGE IS GONNA COME
Sam Cooke

I was born by the river, in a little tent
Oh, and just like the river
I've been running ever since

It's been a long
A long time coming
But I know a change gonna come
Oh, yes it will

It's been too hard living
But I'm afraid to die
'Cause I don't know what's up there
Beyond the sky

It's been a long
A long time coming
But I know a change gonna come
Oh, yes it will

I go to the movie
And I go downtown
Somebody keep telling me
Don't hang around

It's been a long
A long time coming
But I know, a change gonna come
Oh, yes it will

Then I go to my brother
And I say, brother, help me please
But he winds up, knockin' me
Back down on my knees

Oh, there been times that I thought
I couldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able, to carry on

It's been a long
A long time coming
But I know a change gonna come
Oh, yes it will

Miriam Makeba sang:

MALCOLM X

Everybody seems to be preaching revolution
But no one ever seems to show appreciation
To that man over there who brought about a new generation
Yes to that man who brought about a new Black nation

Do you remember Malcolm?
Do you remember him, Malcolm?
Yeah brother, Malcolm
Don't you know he was a great man?
Oh yeah hmm
Ooh yeah

He tried to keep a people away from oppression
I say from day to day Malcolm lived for liberation
Until that man with a gun took away his devotion
He left his wife and kids without protection

Do you remember Malcolm?
Do you remember him, Malcolm?
Yeah brother, Malcolm
Don't you know he was a great man?
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

It seems life and death seem to go together
But for me in my heart Malcolm will live forever
Especially when I think about the blackness he reflected
I said especially when I think about all that he represented

Do you remember Malcolm?
Do you remember him, Malcolm?
Yeah brother, Malcolm
Don't you know he was a great man?

Oh yeah
I said yeah, yeah, yeah
Do you remember Malcolm?
Do you remember him, Malcolm?
Yeah brother, Malcolm
Don't you know he was a great man?
Oh yeah, hmm yeah, yeah
Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, hmm yeah, yeah

Also in the USA, February is designated BLACK HISTORY MONTH, and there is no shortage of songs you can sing to honour that theme. In Britain and Ireland, Black History Month is celebrated in October rather than in February.

5 February 2004 The Morecambe Bay Cockling Disaster
Morecambe Bay by Maggie Holland   
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXEolE3WMXE

I wrote the song in 2004 in the wake of the cockle-picking tragedy in Morecambe Bay. The tune I took from the Australian convict ballad ‘Moreton Bay’, initially because the resonance of the titles (I’d heard Moreton Bay sung many times in years past, mostly by Fred Wedlock). It was only when I started singing it that I realised the tune was originally from Ireland, usually called Boolavogue. Recorded by John Vick at Finiflex, Edinburgh, February 2005.

Another Shrove Tuesday song, from Wales.

Clickable tune on website

PANCAKE SONG

Woman of the house and good family,
Please may I have a pancake ?
Mother is too poor to buy flour
And Father too lazy to work.
Please may I have a pancake ?
My mouth is dry for want of a pancake.
If there is no butter in the house
Put a large spoonful of treacle,
And if there is no treacle in the house
Give a terribly large pancake.
Terribly, terribly.

Collected 9.10.64 from Williams (postman, b. 1899), Sarn Mellteyrn, near Aberdaron, Caernarvonshire.

Probably more of these around if you search for "pancake" in traditional song archives.

FOUR CHAPLAINS

February 3, 1943 - In the icy waters off Greenland the U.S. Army transport ship Dorchester was hit by a German torpedo and began to sink rapidly. There were not enough life jackets and four U.S. Army chaplains on board removed theirs, handed them to young soldiers, and chose to go down with the ship while praying.

BALTIMORE FIRE
The
Baltimore Fire was February 7 and 8, 1904. The song doesn't mention February, though.

It was in response to a themed singaround a couple of years ago when someone came up with "Fair Maids of February" as a theme for the month.

Having nothing suitable I thought I'd better write something.

No one at the session did the Robin Dransfield song, which is rather surprising as they are a knowledgeable lot, so I assume the theme must have been chosen for the snowdrops connection.

Robin Dransfield's version of "Fair Maids of February" was written by him and his brother Barry. He wrote in the sleeve notes that 'fair maids of february' is an old country expression for snowdrops.

I don't know where Acorn4's version is from and can't find anything in the world wild wilderness. With the phrases "common as muck" and "load of wusses" it doesn't sound traditional.

The Fair Maids of February mentioned by Acorn4 is not the Robin Dransfield song of that name:

Swan Arcade sang Last Valentine's Day [Roud 6475 ; Mudcat 69929 ; trad.] in 1973 on their eponymous Trailer album Swan Arcade and in 1988 on their cassette Nothing Blue. (Mainly Norfolk)

Last Valentine's Day, bright Phoebus shone clear
We had not been a-hunting for the space of one year.
I mounted Black Clover, that horse of great fame,
For to hear the horns blow and the words "Tally-ho!"
