GUEST,Jack Campin Help: Dirty Old Town? Meaning??? (324* d) RE: Help: Dirty Old Town? Meaning??? 15 Oct 19


In Morlaix I heard a Breton shanty whose tune was very close to Dirty Old Town - maybe that's why it's popular in Brittany. Wish I could remember its name.

Come to think of it, the Breton historical ballad "An Alarc'h" (The Swan) does use a similar tune, at least similar in overall contour.
