Some 5 years ago my stephfather gave me about 12 tapes with all kind of Irish and Scottish folk music. Unfortunately he only wrote down the titels of the songs so I didn't know which band were playing them. Now, after 5 years, I've found nearly all artists and bands, but there is still one band left which I can't find anywhere.
I hope I can discribe their music well enough, as my english isn't very good sad.gif

-It's an Irish folk group.
-Their sound is something between that of the Dubliners and the Wolfetones.
-As far as I know they only do traditional songs.
-One of the singers has a very low voice, which sounds a bit like Ronnie Drews (but I'm sure it isnt him!)
-One of the other singers sound a bit like they leadsinger of the Dublin City Ramblers (don't know his name)
-I think the records date from the early 60's

some of their songs: The bold finian men, the orange and the green, the old triangle, Take it down, the waxies dargle, a nation once again

Please, let me know if you have any idea which folkgroup this might be

Hi - I'm almost positive that it's the Dubliners.

The name of the song is "Black Velvet Band". If you go to the Amazon.com website, look up an album by the Dubliners called "Irish Pub Songs", and scroll down the page. There is a sample of that song by the Dubliners - sounds pretty much like the same guys singing, although it may be a different version as the sample you posted has quite a bit of banjo that you can't hear on Amazon.

Let me know if you think this is correct. wink.gif

After listening to the sample you have online at your homepage, I can positively tell you that this Ireland's greatest balladeer: Patsy Watchorn, the voice of "Dublin In The Rare Auld Times", "The Ferryman", "Flight Of Earls", "Hearts On Fire" and many more.

That "Black Velvet Band" was recorded in the early 70's with his former group (Dub.C. Ramblers) and on an LP titled "The Guinness Record Of Irish Ballads".

BTW, the man got a website at http://www.rareauldtimes.com with lots of recent music samples
