moongoddess Women in traditional songs (14) RE: Women in traditional songs 22 Sep 05

There is always the song about "The Husband With No Courage in Him" where a young woman complains that she isn't getting any, and then "My Mother Chose My Husband", where the young lass is afraid of what she will be getting (ho, ho).

Seriously, there are many New England songs about women who worked in the cotton and silk mills of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut that would be worth a Google. Many of these women came from Canada and brought with them their lovely French-Canadien music that is so similar to the music of the Cajuns.
