Jim Morrison Ceili Band, Co. Antrim!
I was lucky enough, earlier this week, to be given this lovely old photo of whatI understand was an old north Antrim Ceili Band.
The names I have for the musicians are:
Back Row: John White, John Beattie, Alex Elder, Kenneth Adams.
Front Row: Jim Morrison, Hazel Gillen, ?, John McAleese, Tommy Owens, Marion Bigger, Miss Doherty, Eileen Louden, Robbie Colgan & Hugh McCurdy Hamilton.
One name is missing, for one of the Fiddlers to the right of the Piano in the front row. The missing man may be a Jim McBride, but if so, I don’t know which one he is. If anyone can solve this wee problem, I’d be delighted to hear from them.
Also, I don’t know the proper name of the band, so have in the meantime named it after the conductor, standing to the left.
I’d be interested to learn a little more about this band, including the name of the band & also the venue in the photo.
Interesting to see two Cellos in the line up.
