FTX 434 - THE TRIP OVER THE MOUNTAIN - WOMEN'S VOICES FROM NORTHERN IRELAND

The first two ladies are Maureen and Annie, daughters of the famous Belleek Co Fermanagh singer, Brigid Tunney, and both marred to husbands with similar names, Melly and Lunny! Then enter two singers, Anna Boyle and Mary Toner, recorded at Markethill in Co Armagh. Una Douglas of Derry then sings four classic love songs in Gaelic followed by "Charming Molly", known in the Appalachians as "Lovin' Hannah", a version of "Going to Mass (or Church) last Sunday". A sweet singer from Draperstown in Co Derry is Mary Murphy (aged 71) with 8 beauties including her version of "The False Young Man" sung in Ulster as "The Verdant Braes of Skrene"; finally seven more classics from Antrim from two singers recorded by Seamus Ennis in 1954, Martha Gillen and Jenny Davison.
