The Songs of Elizabeth Cronin
Irish Traditional Singer
Dáibhí Ó Cróinín
“This book is a credit to Dáibhí Ó Cróinín, who, in compiling it, has done a great service to the whole ethos of traditional folk song and has provided a worthy extension to his grandmother’s work”, Fred Johnston, Galway Advertiser.
“Lovers of folk song will treasure it for the monumental work that it is”, Aidan O’Hara, Irish Music.
“A very readable and valuable volume ... A bargain to treasure for all lovers of sean nos singing”, Alison Armstrong, Irish Literary Supplement.
“The two CDs of Bess singing that accompany the book make it clear that her place in Irish traditional music is more than just being at the right place at the right time with a good memory and time to share her notes. She is also a brilliant singer”, Kim Bates, Green Man Review.
“Cróinín has done a great service with this outstanding piece of work”, Duck Baker, Dirty Linen.
