The Blarney Stone
I first became aware of the marvellous voice of Margaret Barry whilst watching a Documentary entitled Songbirds - The First Ladies Of Irish Song narrated by my good friend Fil Campbell.
So struck was I by Margaret's voice and array of songs. I was blown away and have been
an ardent fan of her's ever since!
My personal favourite songs by Margaret are She moves through the Fair
And so entranced and spellbound was I the first time I heard her sing The Flower of Sweet
Strabane it still manages to send shivers up my spine even today!
Have a listen, I am sure you will agree!
SO INSPIRED WAS I BY MARGARET BARRY THAT I HAVE DECIDED TO TAKE UP THE
BANJO MYSELF! HERE IS MY RENDITION OF THE BLARNEY STONE!
I hope, in earnest, that I do Margaret justice. REALLY HOPE YOU LIKE IT!
Anyway, please do subscribe to my Blog which will contain all that I know and adore about Margaret Barry.
