Subject: Maeve Mulvany?
From: GUEST,maire
Date: 29 Jul 01 - 03:43 PM

Does this name ring a bell with anyone? I came upon an LP by this woman, entitled Irish Rebel Ballads, and I was wondering who she is. There is no date on the record, but from the looks of the clothes in the photograph, I'd guess the late '60s. Did she make any other records? What became of her? One song on the album I particularly liked was called 'Roger Casement' and I'd never heard this ballad before. Does anyone know who wrote it?

A quick Google search finds this:

Maeve Mulvany Popular and well-regarded folk singer in Dublin sessions and on radio and TV in the 1960s. Emigrated to USA around 1970.

Very sorry to hear that, I knew Butch had died. She was quite a big name during the "ballad boom" of the '60's. Strong and confident performer. If I remenber rightly she had the first "Yamaha" guitar ever seen in this country at the time, up to then we thought they only made bikes. She and Butch, both together and separatly, gave a lot of pleasure to a lot of people...it's not a bad legacy.

Hi Tony,
I have just been reading this thread re Maeve. I am Vera Rickard who worked in First Aid S. I'm shocked to hear that Maeve died and in that way. I was a member of the Emerald Girls Pipe Band and I believe she joined it at one time, before my time. My sisters knew her. I remember her from a ballad programme on RTE when she sang a song called 'Arbour Hill'. I wrote to ask for the words but she wrote back - I still have the letter - to say that the words were copyright but 'it's on my new record'.
I know that your home in Brunswick Street was a hive of music when Maeve lived there.
Belated condolences to you and your family.

We were great fans of Butch and Maeve. We used to attend whenever they were playing at Bulldogs in Dorchester, Ma. We also saw them a few times at the Irish Pub in Falmouth, Cape Cod, Ma.
I used to have some of their records, or tapes, but have no idea what happened to them. Does anyone know if you can still purchase them and if so where? Preferably cd's.

I'm so glad I stumbled upon this site! I grew up with Butch and Maeve singing in Worcester, MA. My uncle, Jim Sullivan, was very close with the couple. I made my first (and last) singing debut 19 years ago, at the ripe old age of 6 with them. We all sang Puff the Magic Dragon. I can recall them telling my mom they didn't know the song, but for me to start singing and they would join in. I will never forget that or them.....May God Bless.

Butch and Maeve were friends of mine from the many Friday and Saturday nights that the played at Kelly's Lobster House in Holyoke, Ma. I knew that they both had passed and I miss them to this day. They were both fine entertainers and great people. I am proud to have known them and prouder to say they were friends. My condolences to Tony and the rest of the family. I tried to search Youtube in the hopes of finding a clip or two but to no avail. I am sure someone out there must have some video of them in concert and it would be a great tribute to their memory to allow their fans and friends to see them again. With permission of the family of course.

I thought Maeve was one of the finest female ballad singers I ever heard. She performed at one Festival of Kerry at least, around 1966 or 1967.

That short firm '0'Donoghues Opera' was shown to night on TG4. It will be repeated on next Sunday (1st March 2009) at 7pm. It was lovely to see Maeve and Ronnie Drew singing in the film. I never knew it existed.

(Try again sorry.) I'm ashamed it took so long for me to find out the news of Butch and Maeve. A group of us from Delaware made many trips to Matt Kane's Bit of Ireland in Washington DC to see these fantastic performers in the '70s. They ALWAYS got to our requests and thankfully never played the unicorn song (as I recall). Butch would advise,usually at break, "We got tausands of requests...Tausends and tausends...and we're gonna get to every one of them!" There was always a friendly wave, smile and hug whenever we came to town, and Maeve always remembered my girlfriend's (and my) favorite, "Only Our Rivers Run Free." God bless and keep them both. What a lovely legacy to have made so many feel so joyful and special during and between performances. RIP

Maeve was famous in the folk scene in Dublin long before she and Butch got together, she sang on a weekly basis for about 5 years in the Embankment in Tallaght For Mick McCarthy (where I worked bar in in the evenings from 1965 -1970), the old Sheiling in Raheny for Bill fuller, Slatterys of Caple st to name but a few, always singing Irish rebel and freedom songs which were rapturously received whereever she went, often appearing on the same bill as Dolly McMahon and Bob Lynch. A very pretty girl, she kept herself to herself quite a lot but a wonderful singer. Id love to have some of her songs on dvd, Sgt William Bailey was a classic and always brought the house down. I was so saddened when Butch died, she wrote to me with photos of herself and the children and then within a very short time she too had died suddenly, such a pity.
May God rest them both

My friend, Jerry Downs, passed away almost a year ago. I have been helping his siblings find homes for his belongings, as he was a lifelong bachelor with no children. We came across an autographed album "A Night At The Keg With Our Irish Friends" by Butch & Maeve noting 'Holy Cross 84'.

This album is in pristine condition, has probably never been played. Jerry graduated from Holy Cross, so Butch & Maeve must have had a gig on campus back in 1984. Is anyone interested in purchasing this album (all monies earned are going to a local non-profit for children that Jerry was involved with)?

The very first time I walked into "The Locker Room" in Holyoke, with my friend Eric (who would later be part owner of the "Parting Glass Pub"), Butch & Maeve were playing.

It was my first exposure to Irish folk music. I was a bartender at another joint in Holyoke at the time, and I was just stunned at how everyone at the LR was *so* into the music. Clapping, singing, blah, blah.

Then Butch launched into "Walking the Streets in the Rain", and I turned to Eric and said "Holy - can this guy sing!!".

Went to see them many times after that. Every night was a ton of fun. They were great entertainers. I miss 'em.

Many years ago we were invited to a pub in Springfield, MA, to hear an Irish duo, and that began a love of listening to Butch and Maeve. They played frequently at The Piccadilly Pub in Southbury, CT, but we went all over to hear them. We have one album of Butch only, and had all of their 8-tracks, which have disappeared.

No one answered if there are any existing recordings available. Obviously there are some of us who would love to have them.

Tara and the Moore/Mulvaney family -- Butch and Maeve were wonderful performers, and had a knack for remembering the names of their fans and making us feel special. Fabulous people who are missed in their sphere.

And meave combined and individually helped to shape my musical tastes from a very young age. They were greatly admired in my house. Mom and dad were quite friendly with them and they played at their 50th anniv. Butch was a truely kind and wonderful person and meave was truely his equal. Safe home to the two of them a tear comes to my mind as I remember them

I remember Maeve singing in the Grafton Cinema (Dublin) midnight concerts
c 1963/64. There were very few if any solo female ballad singers then.
Mention above of Yamaha (guitar) stirred my memory, Maeve also raced 50cc motor bikes. I may be wrong but ballads & bikes where my main interests then.
Butch was deputy sheriff, Worcester County, Mass from 1990 until his untimely death.

I grew up and continue to live in Alexandria, Va. I have fond memories from the 70's when my parents and grandparents used to go to Matt Kanes in Washington DC to see Butch & Maeve. I was only 10 years old, but remember them coming home late at night very happy. Family lore is that one night my grandmother, who was from Lietrim, got up and danced an Irish jig. I've dug up the old copy of "A Night at the Keg with Our Irish Friends" album, digitized it, and have been listening to it daily. My young kids of 4 & 6 love it! A tip of the hat and a drink to you, Butch & Maeve--your work continues to bring joy on earth...

Maeve is also on an old record called "An evening of Ballads and Blarney at Clontarf Castle" along with the Dragoons Folk Club, John Roche, Shane Redmond and several others.
Maeve sings Arbour Hill, Robert Emmett and Sergeant Baily on this 1966 recording.

I met Butch and Maeve at the keg room in Springfield Ma. Travelled with them to the cape, Conway NH, and Matt Kane's in Washington DC. I sang on the Night at the Keg room with our friends album. I remember when Rory and later Tara were born. I remember meeting you Tony when they lived just outside of Springfield. I cannot tell you how sorry I was to hear that they had passed. They were wonderful friends, and they are truly missed.

In the early to mid-'70s, Butch and Maeve were the highlight of the summer on Cape Cod. They appeared every season at the Century Club in Falmouth where Jan and Jim Campbell provided Irish entertainment from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Grand times they were.
Many a night, Butch and Maeve wound up at our cottage on Round Pond where we all saw the sun come up. Often, everyone took a nap before driving them to their place on Route 28.
they were warm and wonderful people and dear friends to all who crossed their path.
They are with a lot of the lads now.
R.I.P.

Hi! I came across this when I was googling Maeve's name. I am sorry to hear of Butch and Maeve both passing. Like many others on this thread, it was my first exposure to Irish music. But just to throw a twist in here, I heard them at Ryan's Pub in New Orleans back in the 80's. I'll never forget that night. I was visiting my best friend who is an Irish nun and she asked if I would like to go hear some Irish music that night. I kinda thought that was strange because at that time I didn't connect New Orleans with Irish music! I totally enjoyed their music.

Very fun to stumble across this thread! Both Maeve and Butch's passing was so sad to hear about. I grew up listening to them in Holyoke, with my parents Jean and Bill Dean and of course Larry Chesky of Rex Records. He produced quite a few of their later records. He also passed away some years ago.
Tara, I don't know if you remember me, but we met back when you were about 16 I believe. We were at an amusement park where your Mom was playing and we kept each other company!
