Description

LISTEN to the interview

Unlike many post-war Irish migrants, Mick Treacy from Mitchelstown, Co. Cork was more active on the English folk and jazz scenes than in the Irish music scene, though he did sing Irish songs with a group called the Munstermen. He lived in London from 1960 to '63 and then in Birmingham from 1963 to '67. His wife Maura, originally from Co. Sligo, is also present for parts of the interview. She trained as a teacher in Leeds and her father migrated seasonally to England as an agricultural labourer every year for several decades.
