John Maguie

Come Day, Go Day, God Send Sunday (Leader LEE 4062)



This is a field recording by Robin Morton of the fine Fermanagh singer John Maguire. His unornamented singing is a stark contrast to some other Irish singing by his contemporaries.

"All the songs on this record, together with many more from John Maguire's repertoire, appear
in the book Come Day, Go Day, God Send Sunday - an account of John Maguire's life told in his own words, edited by Robin Morton."

Copies of the book were available on Amazon at the time of posting (at widely varying prices).

Side One:
1. Molly Bawn Lowry
2. Marrowbones
3. The Bonny Irish Boy
4. Thousands Are Sailing To Amerikay
5. The Bonny Wee Lassie That Never Said No
6. My Charming Mary

Side Two:
1. The Constant Farmer's Son
2. Joe Higgins
3. The Handsome Collier Lad
4. Dick Mooney's Daughter
5. In Praise Of John Magee
6. Lovely Jane From Enniskea

Track 5 side 2 will be familiar to many as sung by Cathal McConnell on the first record by Boys of the Lough.
