BB To introduce songs, or not, and how? (114* d) RE: To introduce songs, or not, and how? 03 Jun 09

Yes, Terry, if you've learnt it directly from a singer or recording. If you've got it from a book, which we quite frequently do, I think it depends then on the circumstances - to say at a village hall do that 'this song was collected from so-and-so' probably won't mean a thing to the audience, unless perhaps it's a particularly local song.

I couldn't agree more, Paul! We reckon to get at least 9 or 10 songs in a 45-min. set, but I do think putting a song in context can be important, so 'where a song came from' may be more than just composer and where you got it.

Got to go out - I'll take a look at this later.
