Search - List of Books by Colin Irwin

Colin Irwin is a British music journalist. Irwin was an assistant editor of Melody Maker in the 1970s and 1980s, before leaving in the summer of 1987 as the magazine moved in a different direction, and editor of Number One magazine in the late 1980s and early 1990s. His book "In Search of the Craic" details a comic journey around Ireland seeking out pub music sessions and became a best-seller in Ireland. Subsequent books were "In Search Of Albion", a similarly light-hearted journey around English traditions and rituals and "Sing When You're Winning", about the history and culture of terrace songs at football matches. He's also reviewed music for The Guardian, Mojo, The Daily Telegraph, The Independent and fRoots and has been a Mercury Music Prize judge. He reviews mainly singer-songwriters, folk rock, celtic and traditional folk albums. He has also presented music programmes on BBC Radio 2. His play 'The Corridor' has been performed in Surrey and Yorkshire.
