Ride on: In Song and Story free pdf In 1984, Jimmy MacCarthy's "Ride On" was recorded by Christy Moore and its compelling rhythm and lyrics catapulted the singer/songwriter into the national consciousness. Since then, his place in the forefront of Irish popular music his been assured by a string of exceptional songs, among them "No Frontiers", "Missing You", "The Bright Blue Rose" and "As I Leave Behind Neidin". Some of these songs have been recorded by MacCarthy himself and some by such legendary singers as Mary Black and Maura O'Connell. "Ride On: In Song and Story" gathers together over fifty of MacCarthy's most significant lyrics and gives the reader a unique insight into the life events that inspired the songs. In his own inimitable voice, this singer/songwriter traces his journey from squatting and busking in London to singing in the National Concert Hall, major record deals and programmes devoted to him on RTE.
