Tinker's Coin: Celtic Anthology[CD]
Dirty Linen said: 'His original melodies often sound like newly-unearthed traditional Celtic airs...His lyrics create a persona rare in American culture; the tough guy who has taken knocks and tells about it in poetry' Rolling Stone Magazine said: 'Jack Hardy is so at home in the role of Celtic bard that it is hard to believe he is home-grown' Over the years Jack traveled extensively and spent time in Ireland, England and Scotland. He also devoured and distilled the literature, history and mythology of these countries as well as his experiences into these songs. Subjects range from tinkers (or travelers) in The Tinkers Coin, Sheila, and Willie Goggin's Hat, to the history of the diaspora in the Bony Bailiff, If I Ever Pass This Way Again, and Sending Home the Slates (never before released) to happy go lucky up tempo tunes such as Blackberry Pie, May Day and The Drinking Song to the stark harmonic beauty of West of Dingle.
