About Elizabeth Crotty 1885-1960

In the 1950's Mrs. Crotty of Kilrush, County Clare, was one of the best known and highly respected traditional musicians in Ireland. Her instrument was the concertina. She could neither read nor write music but she could commit a tune to paper by giving each key a number, and using a symbol to denote a press or draw. Her style of playing was relatively unadorned, but it was very rhythmic, due to the fact that her music was played for dancers. Even though she made no commercial recordings, she did make two private ones, a solo, and a duet with a Mrs Harrington.

I like your vision on this one Gary.....Like the black and white process and perspective. The textures are superb with nice lines. Good lighting and exposure. The noise is a nice touch as well ......

I wondered if you'd find this image James, and was rather hoping that you were related to her.
Regards, Gary

PS I think my maternal grandfather's family came from Waterford, it is a small world.

Simple but effective. Love the grain effect. Has an old world feel to this photo. Like Mrs Crotty herself?

Is nothing sacred Gary? Ha Ha! Digging up some lost distant relation of mine (Maybe}. Actually all my ancestors hail from the waterford side of the country, believe it or not one of my ancestors was a genuine highwayman. A kind of robinhood figure, who was eventually bertayed to the british redcoats by a woman/lover, I think. So there ya go! its a small world!


Danny Brannigan   {K:19523} 2/23/2009
A wonderful tribute Gary.
