Subject: Anyone heard of The Jolly Beggarmen?

Date: 29 May 98 - 10:52 PM

This is my first post, but have been amazed at the knowledge of Irish music. Does anyone have any information on a band called The Jolly Beggarmen? A friend of mine bought a double cassette set of theirs in Ireland five years ago, but I've never seen anything else except a version of "Only Our Rivers Run Free" on a compilation set. Any info on who they are or how to get their material would be appreciated.

I have a triple cassette set from Ireland with a few songs of the Jolly Beggarman. I have no infor about this group; I though it was the name of a single person as I have listed it as Jolly Beggarman. Hovewer, I'm going to post a new thread with the lyrics of a song (Streets of New York) song by this band. Ciao

I have a CD called "the Very Best Of Irish Rebel Songs" done by the Jolly Beggarmen. I have also found their work , uncredited, on another Irish Music compilation disk (which I cant recall right now).

Good tight group.

Apparently, their 40-song album is available on CD or cassette from Irish Records International, Inc. Would you recommend it? It's a little hard to figure out the catalogue - this could be a collection of 40 drinking songs.

Can't help you on the "jolly Beggarmen" but there's a Belfast group in Orange County, CA called "The Irish Beggarmen" that are pretty good. They might be able to direct you toward the other guys, their address is 4036 Meadowbrook st, Orange, CA 92665 714-637-1087 ask for Frank Murphy. good luck

I bought the CD mentioned by Joe Offer: it is OK, much to my surprise. I was halfway expecting the oompa-pa tape I've been fooled by several times before. It is a varied group of songs, but is mixed poorly. It sounds like a studio tape dubbed with artificial pub sounds (laughing, singing along, clanking of glasses) to make it sound live. It is two CDs for $16, and probably worth the money if you like the group. I really like the band, and would love to get the album The Very Best of Irish Rebel Songs. THey seem to be their strong suit. Bo - Where did you get that CD?

I have two Jolly Beggermen tapes and both are titled "The very best of Irish rebel songs". However, one tape has a Volume I after the title. That one is put out by EMI, no date given, and the second by Fiesta Record Company, Inc. in 1987. Different songs on each.

I don't know if these are on CD.

If you want to know the songs on each tape e-mail me. mim@teleport.com

The Jolly Beggarmen were formed in approx 1976 and lasted more than 15 years. The main members were Joe White, Tommy Jenkinson, Jonny Carrol, Paddy Quigley, Eamonn O'Rourke Snr. Also from time to time there was Kevin Molloy, Donal Nagle and a couple more that I don't remember. They recorded On the Dole and The Inner City Song which reached the top ten in Ireland. They also travelled extensively around europe and the UK.

The Inner City song was written by Don Baker for the Jolly Beggarmen and it reached no 2 in the Irish Charts... Don Baker is also on the single playing the harmonica... you will find info on this on Don Bakers Web site. Tommy Jenkinson and Joe White are still playing music...

Hi Brad,

Charlie Clarke was my Dad. He was one of the founder members of The Jolly Beggarmen. Their record label was Dolphin Records (try dolphin traders - www.dolphin-dara.ie). They have a couple of shops in Dublin, one on Talbot St, where they sell cds etc direct to the public- if I remember correctly.

The Jolly Beggarmen recorded a number of lp's. I have copies of "20 Great Irish Drinking Songs" (cassette and lp) and "40 Irish Drinking Songs" (cd), but I'm sure there was at least one more.

According to Dad, these songs were recorded on an old style tape recorder in the pub during a gig. Hence why they're crackly, and you have people shouting out loud at various times.

Hope this will help at least a bit - if you need any additional information let me know.

Wendy

Would love to know also who was the main singer (Sea Around Us, James Connolly, etc.). From the above it sounds like the latter may have been Tommy Jenkinson. Or is it Jenkins?

Why is it so hard to find more info on them? I have pages on them at my website ... and that information comes from either the recordings I have ... or this post.

'79 dublin - songs that brought the tears and questions of politics, love and life - laughter and dancing - pints late nights after hours - hot whiskey with lemon and cloves -precious sharing of joys and sorrows through the songs - strangers that you felt you knew and knew you more than any had before through the music, the reactions to the words and the beat, the flash of an eye, - the smoke filled rooms and the smell of the fire-   i think of that time and place    never said goodbye    still in my heart-      yes i remember them well

I came across The Jolly Beggarmen by wading through LPs at a folk festival. I was blown away by their raw brilliance. The LP I picked up was their early 1974 Olympic Record OBL106. It is signed by all the band (Charlie Clarke, Tommy Jenkinson, Kevin Molloy, Tommy Molloy and Joe White). I wish I had seen them perform. (Malc - s.battybatty@btinternet.com)

Hi,

The Jolly Beggarmen played in and around Dublin. I rember them in the Berni Inn Pub on Nassau Street in Dublin around 1973/1974. They were great but I heard that they broke up in the mid 1980's. Maybe it was due to the poor Irish economy at the time.

I loved this band. Heard them play in a number of pubs in Dublin. Great songs. You can get their music on Amazon.com

You should post to Facebook page: "Dublin Down Memory Lane" bet you'll get lots of info on there. There is a Jolly Beggerman Facebook pg too, guess it's your own. All the best.

Just to add a little confusion: I have a cassette tape entitled 'The Beggermen,' presumably a duo comprising Seamus Kennedy and Tom O'Carroll, since no variant of a song by that title is on it.
This is either a copy or a private production, hardly a commercial production.
They are skillful performers, and sing very fast.

Would that be the Seamus who is a Mudcatter?

The Jolly Beggarmen played for me in The Berni Inn from 71 /77 as did the Dublin City
ramblers/ Paddy Reilly / Anne Byrne/ Brendan Grace and many more.So sorry on the
Loss of two great guys.They will be sadly remembered.Can anyone tell me if Kevin and his brother are still on the scene.I believe Joe is playing in Spain .I have their first album
Signed by each of the group which I endorsed.I also have the first Lp of the Ramblers
Signed.
James I knew your dad well he was a fantastic mandolin player and singer.You were just a kid when I left for Canada.
Hi Paul Cooke in Canada give me a bell.
