Question
Wow Lou, I've read some of  your posts! Pretty impressive

Back in the 60's, I had some Chad MItchell Trio LP's, but they were lost in a flood.

Trying to find a song they sang.  I thought the title was "Kevin Barry".

Some of the lyrics I recall are:
"Tell us the name, of you companions and we will set you free"

"So they tortured Kevin Barry.........

Answer
Hi Dave
I don't recall the Mitchell Trio doing that song, although they did love the Irish tunes and the narrative story songs, so I would not be surprised.
Is there any chance you owned anything by the Clancy Brothers, the Irish folk group?
They certainly did the song "Kevin Barry"...on more than one of their albums, as I recall.
Any chance it was them you heard sing it?
