The Songs of Frank Harte


No other Irish traditional singer or song collector ever amassed such a large and wide-ranging repertoire as Dublin man Frank Harte (1933-2005). Though renowned for his Dublin street ballads and Napoleonic pieces, he sang all sorts of old songs, always with intimacy, joy and commitment, and left behind his collection of field recordings of as many as 15.000 song performances by other singers. (Hear him here at a singing session) We are lucky that Frank recorded many wonderful albums that are still available, and we will select from these to sing and learn in class.
