The Wolfe Tones Phenomenon Alex Fell
This book is an attempt to place the Wolfe
Tones, arguably Ireland's most popular and
internationally successful folk and ballad
band, in its political and social context.
To explain why it was felt that these
accomplished musicians should be kept
away from mass entertainment via the
broadcast media and why their immense
contribution to the national economy at a
time of financial crisis should be ignored.
Also to collate their considerable
achievements. This unplanned gallop
through Irish history had the unexpected
result of discovering the pivotal influence of
the Wolfe Tones in bringing about the Peace
Agreement in the North of Ireland.
