GUEST,Malcolm Storey a folk song with lots of incarnations (50) RE: a folk song with lots of incarnations 31 Dec 15

You are correct of course Jack.

Unfortunately once something becomes "the standard" people tend to believe it.

I did take the bother to read the remainder of the article and the bald statement is refuted later - but of course most people would not read that far.

I suppose I was tempted to highlight this for all our benefits and should perhaps have said so in that posting.

I gave up long ago on "experts" putting things on Mudcat regarding Whitby Folk Week but at least I got the chance to correct some errors in Sally Atkinson's affectionate 50th anniversary booklet.

And of course ALS appears in the recent compendium of Burns songs recorded by various excellent performers.
