Herself and Myself

Herself and Myself, Thomas McCarthy's albumMy new album is ‘Herself and Myself’, which I recorded in 2014.  It’s dedicated to my wonderful mother who died four years ago.

Songs on the album include:

  • Moving Us On – my own song about the discrimination faced by Travellers and Gypsies, written in response to the Dale Farm evictions
  • She is My Joy – beautiful love song written by me and my grandfather, Johnny McCarthy
  • The Escape of John Mitchel – rare song celebrating the escape from Australia of 19th Century Irish hero John Mitchel
  • Nell Flaherty’s Drake – a song known and loved among the travelling people for its vivid curses
  • Young Willie – a rare recording of Thomas’ mother, Mary McCarthy, an old song about a Catholic boy and a Protestant girl, her father shoots him and then she turns into a swan

You can look at the lyrics to the songs here. I’ll be posting more background info up soon.
