Shamrock, Rose and Thistle: Playlist

Shamrock, Rose and Thistle: Folk Singing in North Derry is a classic collection-study by Hugh Shields of seventy-four traditional songs in English, several in multiple versions, which he recorded in the field from 1961 to 1975 in Magilligan, north Co Derry. It was first published in Belfast in 1981.

Presented here are the source audio recordings for seventy-three of the songs of the collection (no 47 'The Lisburn maid' was only ever recorded on paper), plus eight further versions of seven of the songs. These latter appear at the end of the listing.
