Competition : Win "The Hogan Collection" worth €170 as part of Album Launch 23rd November 2013

On Saturday 23rd November 2013 Dick Hogan will officially launch The Hogan Collection at the Teachers Club in Dublin.  The MC for the night will be Nicholas Carolan. 
The songs in this collection are almost entirely from the Irish tradition, a stand-alone collection and reference book of songs and a few spoken pieces, the collection totals two hundred in all. It is accompanied by a box set of recordings and in addition this extensive collection is available as 25 individual cds in 12 themes. It has been a major undertaking and has consumed close to a decade of Dick's life to see this vision through from idea to reality.

We have a 20 CD Box Set worth €170 to give away. Simply tell us what Mr. Hogan's first name is and add it as a comment below.  All the names go into a hat.

We will have a review of the collection complete this weekend.  In the meantime you can check out his website for more details

The teachers Club is located at 36 Parnell Sq West in central Dublin and the launch starts at 9pm.



“The whole bubbling mass embodies everything that could be said about “Irishness”. Dick's is in fact a unique world that takes exceptional focus to maintain and stamina to chronicle. It is quite remarkable to find it all in the one person in the twenty-first century. This lyric cosmos runs behind Dick Hogan's daily life like an everlasting silent movie. Dick lets the volume and variety of lyrics and melodies celebrate the older world as a holiday for the imagination.”

-- Fintan Vallely

“He is a tunesmith whose heart, spirit, love and cultural passion are unmatched. Dick Hogan is a musical giant in the widest sense, a gentlemanly Gaelic giant of complete sincerity and virtue. This therefore is a gigantic work from a unique tunesmith, from a warrior who is most likely the last of a line of very rare and very special breed. This work will be a reference source in any house that respects song, in Irish or in English.”

Richard  - because I believe Dick is a secondary dimnuitive of that name.   It goes like this:  My first name is Thomas, my second name is Henry and my last name is Hogan.   I don't think I am any relation but my sister told me that our relatives were from Cork.  I've been told there are a lot of Hogans in Tipperary, too !
  Anyway Secondary Dimunitive - Heinrich, Henry, Hank  -  So his name would go Richard, Rick, Dick.  
Well I've taken my best shot at the prize,  I certainly would like to learn to perform some of his songs !
