Paul Brady: Making Tracks For A Rock Station

Ken Hunt, Folk Scene, November 1982

(ED. NOTE: The interview upon which some of the following article was based is an edited version of one conducted for, but as yet unpublished in, our English cousin publication, Swing 51. We're grateful to S51 editor Ken Hunt for the article and for arranging the interview — especially as it was at our request, not without delays and difficulties, and under an early deadline to boot! Thanks also go to Linda Gaeta of 21 Records for her assistance. And on a purely personal note, we couldn't be more pleased to feature Paul Brady on the cover of this, the last issue of Folkscene; his work as a folk artist and his current work as a rock musician is of the highest calibre and proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that rock 'n' roll and folk music do blend!)
