Family Sources in the 1960s Ireland


 引続き Rambling House から。


The Dance Hall Act of 1935, which had dealt such a blow to traditional music by banning the house dances, could not outlaw family occasions and parties. It is significant that come the ballad boom, a large volume of songs flowed from families such as the O Domhnaills of Donegal, the Tunneys and McConnells of Fermanagh, the Clancys of Tipperary, Sarah and Tommy Makem of Armagh and the Keane sisters of Galway. Added to this were the wonderful and often ribald Dublin street ballads and the songs of Dominic and Brendan Behan.
