Tramore Coastguard Cultural Centre, Friday 8th February at 7:30pm
Legendary folk singer Jim Page visits the Coastguard Centre on Feb 8th.
He is known for his political songs and for his activism in support of buskers. He is one of the organizers of Buskerfest in Seattle. He frequently appears with Artis the Spoonman. He tours internationally, yet he still plays at Pike Place Market as a street performer.
This is what Christy Moore had to say of the man who wrote “Hiroshima Nagasaki Russian Roulette” and “Landlord”, both recorded by Moving Hearts,
“Every now and again I encounter a singer who gives me a glimmer of hope. Jim Page carries the light.”
It was in Ireland that Christy Moore first heard Jim’s song “Hiroshima Nagasaki Russian Roulette,” and made it a permanent part of his repertoire. When Christy formed the great Irish band Moving Hearts “Hiroshima” was their first single and a centrepiece to their shows.
