Ceol agus Cantan

A book of lore and songs by Batty Sherlock & Thomas B. Ryan with accompanying CD of music and song


The CD recording presents a cross section of Batty's and Thomas Bernard's repertoire of tunes and songs, while in the book each man draws on his own musical memories and on the local lore.  Since both men are from the Doocastle area, their stories and recollections overlap to some extent.  However, each man's individual recall varies considerably and quite often they draw on different strands of heritage and lore.  Furthermore, each one talks in his own particual style and idiom.  As a result, both give us valuable first hand accounts of a social and musical scene that has almost disappeared.  They celebrate and give witness to the unique "lived musical experience" within their community. - Seosamh O Broin
