about

"Not really traditional songs but set to traditional tunes.They pick up on the Irish in London in the 1950s - so many of them had to leave home. They are about missing home, hard times, bad working conditions. Ewan MacColl wrote Just a Note about the building of the M1, based on the experience of Francis McPeake, an Irish piper who came over to work. His words were made into a song for the Radio Ballads. Francis sings it to a pipes accompaniment, so our harmonies would probably have come from the drones of the pipes. Bob Davenport wrote Wild Wild Whiskey because he was a great friend of McPeake - the two songs go together because of the experiences of so many of the Irish migrant workers. You go to the pub for solace, you drink too much, and it wrecks your life. So in a sense they are both political songs, but with their roots in traditional themes. But of course, it's thanks to the Irish workers that we gained so much great music in the pubs over here!"
