“I Remember, I Remember…” Len Graham in conversation with Ronan Browne #Séamus100: Séamus Ennis Centenary Celebrations Venue: Rush Library, Chapel Green, Rush, County Dublin, K56 ED95 Commences: 2pm Admission: Free Booking essential, book online at tseac.ie or call 01-8020898 Len Graham shares some musical memories from his journey in the Ulster Song Tradition. County Antrim born Len Graham has been a full-time professional traditional singer since 1982. From the early 1960s he sought out and recorded older singers such as Eddie Butcher and Joe Holmes. Poet and writer Ciarán Carson says, “By definition, any traditional Irish singer is obliged to the past, but he assimilates the songs in the here-and-now, and re-makes them in his own voice, continually. Those who know Len Graham’s singing will recognise artistry and the spontaneity of his voice; but there is no spontaneity without recollection. To be here, you must have been there; and Len has, many times.” Over the years, Len has collaborated and worked with numerous musicians, poets and storytellers but especially late Joe Holmes and the John Campbell. His association with John Campbell brought storytelling and song to a world audience. Len’s extensive repertoire of Irish songs covers the whole gamut of themes and human experience as portrayed in early classic ballads, broadside ballads, local songs, come-all-ye’s, lyric folksongs, music hall pieces; songs on politics, murder, love, emigration and much more. The Séamus Ennis centre are taking bookings for this talk - 01-8020898
