Sarah Makem

Sarah Makem was born, lived, and died, in County Armagh, and spent hardly any time away from it, yet her name today is as revered in the world of folk music as that of Jean Ritchie, Pete Seeger, or Bob Dylan, for what Sarah did was sing, thereby preserving a priceless legacy of songs. She was an ordinary woman with an extraordinary gift, whose legacy might have been lost forever had it not been for the burgeoning interest in folk music in the middle of the last century that brought her into the public eye.
