Goose Gander Is traditional song finished? (621* d) RE: Is traditional song finished? 08 Mar 10

Mr./Ms. Ralphie -

Sorry, but you are the one who misses the point. A 'Source Singer' is understood to mean (by everyone I've ever known to use the term) as someone who learned his or her songs from a living tradition, usually oral. A 'Source Singer' is not necessarily the composer of the song, though it might be - lots of traditional singers composed and sang their own material.
