Manks Concert 2014 - Manx dialect poetry performed by Laurence Kermode: T E Brown and Others
Laurence Kermode performs some of his favourite Manx dialect poetry:
1) 'The First Man to Fly in the Isle of Man' - Anon. The aspirations of a simple man turn out to be more complicated than her first anticipated ... poor oul John Billy Dan!
2) An extract from 'The Schoolmasters' by T E Brown
This live recording was made at the Manks Concert, hosted by the Manx branch of the Celtic Congress, Peel Centenary Centre, 1 February 2014.
