Joanie Madden Interview (Whistle)

The legend. ‘We just kept climbing up that mountain.’ The hardest working woman in folk music. Hearing Mary Bergin and the beginnings of a career in the entertainment business. New York, the drive to succeed and picking up the phone thirty times a day to get a gig. Balls, weddings, county dances, and the circuit. An American in Ireland. Tour(s), interrupted. ‘It’s a tough old racket.’ Keeping going and being present for the opportunity.

And the tunes!
