Eat at Joes
Thanks to Danny Gilhooley for unearthing this song, written by Matraca Berg and Gary Harrison. Recorded at the Kitchen Garden Cafe in Birmingham in June 2016.

John O’ Dreams
Written by Bill Caddick using a traditional folk tune that is more familiar from Tchaikovsky’s ‘Pathetique’. Recorded at Cafe #9 in Sheffield, Jan 2015.
Thanks to Vladan Zdravkovic for the video recordings, he did film a whole evening’s worth of songs but these were the ones (later in the evening) where we relaxed and stopped making mistakes. It’s surprising how nervous you get when you know it’s for posterity.

Carrickfergus
Probably written by Dominic Behan in the 1960s based on a 19th Century Broadsheet called ‘The Sick Young Man’. Recorded at Cafe #9 in Sheffield, Jan 2015

Blue Moon
Written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934, recorded by almost everybody, including us at Cafe #9 in Jan 2015

Alone

  1. Carrickfergus needs a high degree of vocal accuracy and I think you delivered that well. A sensitive performance with good dynamic and first class accompaniment on the clarinet. I will be in touch about a spot at Morley FC
