taking our culture forward

An interview with Colin Jerry RBV, one of the most important figures of modern Manx cultural history.

Speaking to Peter Browne in 1995 at the Lorient Festival in Brittany, Jerry explains something of the nature of Manx music, where to hear good Manx music in the Isle of Man on a Saturday night, and he sings 'Manannan Beg Mac y Leirr', a beautiful song in Manx Gaelic about the ancient Celtic God of the Island.
