Frank Harte - Recordings


Frank recorded several albums and made numerous television and radio appearances, most nobably the Singing Voices series he wrote and presented for RTÉ Radio, which was produced by Peter Browne in 1987. Frank's first two LPs, though released with six years between them, were recorded in one session in England by Bill Leader with concertina accompaniment on some songs by Alf Edwards. From 1998 he recorded four albums for the Hummingbird record label on which he was accompanied by Donal Lunny on bazouki and guitar. These last four albums covered the huge topics of the 1798 Rebellion, the Great Irish Famine, Napoleon Bonaparte and the Irish navvies abroad. Each album is characteristically accompanied by comprehensive liner notes of meticulous research into each song and the subject in question, though his accuracy and impartiality as a historian is not as unanimously praised as his singing. In 2004, Frank's first two albums were re-released on CD, though the first track of his first album 'Traveller All Over The World' was omitted.
