Cuilionn Tune Req: new Scottish emigrant songs (25) RE: Tune Req: Scottish Emigrant Lyrics 27 Jul 04


Jack--

Powerful stories, and some well-turned phrases... Hope someone accepts the challenge to arrange these & set them to music! I can almost hear a hint of music behind them as I read, especially the first song that you posted.

Could you give us a thumbnail sketch of some of the dates & places & other historical facts surrounding the lyrics you've written, especially the areas in Scotland & North America that defined your family's emigrant journey(s)?

Here in Maine, some friends of mine are immersed in a similar project, researching Maine's Scottish immigrant history and creating a musical presentation for use with schools, historical societies, & other community groups.

Looking forward to more postings...
