  • Description

    Jerry Hicks, singer, posing with a microphone on the occasion of a BBC recording session. Rear of the photograph states "Dermot Barry (Jerry Hicks) Folk collector and singer, Armagh". [According to Folktrax, he was born Cork, Ireland, 22 February 1916. The photograph was taken in Co. Armagh, Northern Ireland in either 1952, 1953 or 1958. The identification as Dermot Barry in the photograph album is perhaps incorrect - Dermot Barry from Co. Armagh was not recorded by Peter Kennedy, but by Jean Ritchie and George Pickow in 1952 or 1954.] 3 of 3 related photographs.
