Young Edmund In the Lowlands Low


Geordie Hanna was described to me as a big gentle farmer from the southern shores of Lough Neagh, with hands like shovels, I am told, and a welcome for everyone. Geordie and his sister, Sarah-Anne O'Neill, collected many songs and kept the singing tradition alive in County Tyrone, even through the dark days of the troubles. Sadly, Geordie passed away soon after I was born, in 1987. As a young teenager, I met Sarah-Anne during music sessions held on Friday nights in Derrytresk. I take my inspiration here from Geordie's version of this dark and well-travelled murder ballad.
