GUEST,Dave Hunt Songs you shouldn't sing in UK folk club (375* d) RE: Songs you shouldn't sing in UK folk club 30 Jan 10


I was once privileged to hear the late great Frank Harte sing 'Johnny I Hardly Knew You' - very slowly and with so much feeling. A wonderful moving rendition which really made one appreciate the horror of the events. After all it's a song about a poor soldier getting seriously wounded - not a jolly 'come all ye' which is how it's usually sung. And I'm sure some of you remember the great version of Wild Rover by the Dransfields - some different words and sightly different tune
