Thomas McCarthy’s new CD featuring 10 songs handed down through his Irish Traveller family tradition

Category:

‘When I’m gone, it’s gone’

Thomas McCarthy’s new CD Comfort features 10 songs handed down through his Irish Traveller family tradition. Only a few are commonly sung, and most are particular to Thomas’s family branch.

Includes free 20-track companion CD, Last Man Standing – how Thomas sees himself, as he is aware of the importance of sharing these songs more widely before the tradition is lost. Liner notes give a tantalising glimpse into Thomas’s family background and rich cultural history. For more on Thomas, see the Last Man Standing website.
