Songs of the County Down

Sorry, currently out of print

Songs of the County Down is a superb collection of traditional ballads and songs from the County Down area compiled by Jackie Boyce from his extensive personal collection. Over one hundred songs and ballads are to be found within these pages, each with an accompanying note from Jackie to help explain their origin and a little piece of their history. Music brings alive over half the songs in the book, encouraging you to tap your toes and nod your head in time to the beat.

Jackie is an exhilarating and experienced performer, whose 30-odd years of performing and reciting the songs and ballads he has collected or been given, bring alive both these well known and unfamiliar favourites as soon as you open the first page. Whether a book for reference or a gift, this collection of songs truly is a must for anyone with an interest in traditional and local music.
