Frank Howe About Irish Rebel Songs (53* d) RE: About Irish Rebel Songs 01 Nov 99

G, the attraction for singing these songs is evident on several levels
musically - many of these are wonderfully constructed songs
historically - these songs document a significant struggle of a proud and determined people
politically - they acknowledge a continued struggle to reunite a divided country
personally - for many of us who sing them, they are a connection to family both immeadiate, and generations past. we learned these songs mixed in with hundreds of others from people we love. we sing them because they sound right and they feel right.
you and others may disagree as to their value and that's okay ...but you see, that's the beauty of freedom!
