Product Information / Track List

演出者介紹:
杜煥(1910-1979)﹐廣東肇慶人﹐出生3個月後即患上眼疾﹐只模模糊糊看到影像。本不是富裕家庭的杜家﹐因為1914年珠江西水氾濫﹐生活更見艱難。杜煥的父親不久過世﹐遺下妻子及子女5人﹐杜母為了生計﹐只得把他送到一位失明人處學藝﹐而他偶然的機緣下拜了孫生門下﹐學唱南音。20年代中國內戰﹐廣州一片混亂﹐於是他跟隨師兄們輾轉來到香港。當時他在廟街的煙館及妓院演唱﹐因為得到客人賞識而收入豐厚﹐可惜卻染上了毒癮。後來他在廟街認識了一位紅顏知己並結為夫婦﹐婚後育有四名子女﹐不料都一一夭折。

太平洋戰爭爆發﹐母親與妻子相繼離世﹐而香港政府正式廢娼﹐他的生活更見艱苦。1943年他與一位擅唱粵曲的寡婦合作﹐兩人彼此照顧﹐直到50年代南音日漸式微﹐對方亦怕生活被拖累﹐於是離他而去。1955年開始每星期於香港電臺演唱﹐他的生活才漸趨安定﹐可是香港日漸洋化﹐這種戲曲節目已見不合時移﹐直到1970年電臺決定停止製作該節目﹐他的生活又陷於窮困當中﹐於是他惟有在街頭賣唱。幸好不久南音得到海外及香港的學者重新發掘﹐他的演唱從街頭移到大會堂﹑中文大學等嚴肅表演場地﹐再又轉往茶樓中。1973香港節﹐他為「灰闌記」以南音作間場敘述情節﹐翌年更是香港節南音演唱會的主角﹐令這種民間藝術成為其中一項代表性的傳統文化表演。

專輯介紹:
過去在省港澳,每到新年、元宵等喜慶節日,常見瞽師手持彩木龍舟,沿街獻唱龍舟。大戶人家有喜慶,或店鋪新張,瞽師藝人會在門前唱曲和清,賺取紅包。本輯收錄已故香港瞽師杜煥(1910-1979)所唱經典喜慶南音和龍舟曲目,善頌善禱,祝願福壽康寧,人所樂聽:「賀你闔家人富厚,真講究,添福和添壽;龍舟聽過係賀喜呀快樂優悠。」

曲目:
1. 八仙賀壽南音
2. 天官賜福南音
3. 心想事成龍舟
