GUEST,Anne Croucher Songs you thought were trad (155* d) RE: Songs you thought were trad 23 Nov 04


The ladies go dancing at Whitsun uses the same tune as Week before Easter?

I can see there are similarities but the tunes I use don't even swap over very easily.

I've never really been all that worried about 'traditional' or recent - it is all just a matter of time. I have started reserching and including the author of the song or poem and tune in my song book - but for decades I really didn't care, if it was a good song I pinched it to sing myself.

It is only that people have become more interested in sources and have been asking me where my songs came from, and I hate to say 'I don't know'.
