GUEST,Dave MacKenzie Foreign Takes On English Tunes/Songs (22) RE: Foreign Takes On English Tunes/Songs 19 Jun 08

If you want "foreigners" doing English songs, try the shanty scene. Most foreign groups use British material, sometimes in translation, such as Cztery refy's (Polish) "Zegnaj brzegu Tarwathie".

Of course there's a long history. Read the notes in Child, though I seem to remember that it wiorks both ways, and "Lord Randall", for example, was originally Italian.
