Send Me Your Old Folk And Rebel Songs

I hope to be adding new posts to this blog on a regular basis and I hope you will contribute comments to the posts. I am looking for ideas as to how to progress with site, it has got to the stage now where I have most of The Wolfe Tones, Christy Moore and over 800 songs in total. If you have any old folk or rebel lyrics and chords will you please send them to me at
Lets keep our music alive

Johnny McEvoy

Johnny McEvoy has a new album out, the songs are a mixture of classic oldies and some new stuff. The album is now available from Johnny's website at €25.
I look forward to reviewing it and adding a few lyrics and chords to my site.
He is now on tour around Ireland so if you get the chance go and see him, you won't be disappointed as the show is better than ever.

I Don't Play Rock Songs

I've gotten a lot of requests for rock and pop songs from Irish bands and singers. When visitors see a site for Irish songs and chords some expect to find groups like U2 , The Cranberries and Van Morrison. I don't do that kind of stuff, it's not that I don't like it it's just that they are not ''Irish Songs'' , they are pop and rock songs played by singers and groups who come from Ireland and that doesn't make their songs ''Irish Songs''
There are plenty of sites around that cater for U2 Van Morrison, The Cranberries and so on. What I concentrate on are folk and ballads tunes from over 200 years ago to the present day. That's what I play as a guitar player, and that's the stuff I was brought up on. If you have a piticular song and are looking for the chords and it's a folk tune then let me know and I'll have a go at it.
