Subject: Altan play with Dolly !!
From: GUEST,Sam Pirt

Hi

I listen to loads of different music and with Dolly Partons new release 'Little Sparrow' I thought I would check it out.

I was paticularly suprised to see that on a number of tracks she has members of Altan (Irelands BEST band in my opinion) featuring.

I have to say it works really well and the album is really good with some very nice chords, runs, musicianship and singing!

But what do all of you catters (paticularly American) make of it?

Cheers, Sam

Well, I think it is kind of interesting....I used to listen to her alot when I was little (now I'm just short). I still think that she has talent....and she has done quite a few great songs.....

I think it's a great match. If you really listen to her voice it is remarkably like the Sean nos singing. We were in Ireland a few years ago and heard a traveller woman sing a-capella with lots of ornamentation "I Love You in the Most Peculiar Way" She liked the song and sang it the way she knew how. The Irish are great that way- It's all just music to them!

I have a live CD from a few years back, when Dolly invited Altan to play with her at her homecoming concert. I though they made a fantastic combination.

Hotspur, I have a CD of Dolly with Altan also, it may be the same one. Mine is called Heartsongs and Altan sang Barbara Allen in Gaelic and Dolly joined in in English. It was a live recording, they complimented each other beautifully. Is this the same one you mention ?.

Sam we had a discussion about "Little Sparrow" on the" Dolly Parton on Austin City Limits" thread a few weeks ago. It is an awesome CD. I didn't know Altan was on it until Mike Regenstreif set me straight.

I've got a promotional copy that doesn't list the performers.

Dolly is a real heroine of mine. She featured on 'The Parkinson Show' here in England last week and impressed...tons of self deprecating remarks and a deal of wisdom and good sense. When questioned about the musch rumoured 'relationship' between her and her personal assistant (a female childhood friend), she turned straight to camera and in the best Bill Clinton manner said witha smile "I did NOT have sex with that woman!"

On this occasion Parky had to deal with Dolly, Denise Lewis and Tracy Ullman...it made for some inspired TV for a change. Three incredibly strong women with more in common than you'd first imagine.

Her trad. music credentials are pretty sound I reckon, so why doesn't some daring festival organiser book her over here? Oh, and a Folk Roots interview is long overdue Ian A.

Aggree with you about Dolly on Parkinson - loved her - & that song''I will always love you'' - anyone who writes songs like that will always have my vote. an other favourite of mine is 'Here it comes again'.

One of the many things I like about "Sparrow" is the way it revitalizes "Sweet By and By." I had written it off as cliched -- anybody know if the Irish lyrics are available somewhere?

Dolly Parton!! Thank God, when I saw the thread I thought it might have been Dolly the cloned sheep or worse still Michael Hely Rae , the son of "colourful" Irish politician Jackie, who is so like the father that he's known as Dolly.

Did anyone see Doly on 'Oh So Graham Norton' - hillarious - She was really enjoying herself - Great line when she said that she loved dressing that way - hell if I was a man I'd have been a Drag Queen - and a darn good one at that Norton replied

If Dolly lives in Dollywood?

Do Altan live in Altan Towers?

Hi. I'm looking for the lyrics that ALTAN sing on the Barbara Allen recording (Heartsongs). Does anyone know what they are? They are beautiful.
Thank you!

Oh dear, terrier... the sound mixing on that is terrible. I adore Dolly but I hate that engineer. And, I find it odd Dolly would allow that to be the cut. Just doesn't seem like something a lady of her nature would allow.
