Subject: Origins: Sarah Makem's I courted a wee girl
From: GUEST,Claire

Just wondering if anyone knows how to get hold of Sarah Makem's recording of Ulter ballads. I am particularly interested to find out if her version of "I courted a wee girl" was similar to the version recorded by Dirvish. In Dirvish's A Healing Heart liner notes, Sarah's versio is sited as the source. However,I imagine the words and the melody might have some variation.

Any info most appreciated,

Claire
