Bill, consider that many contemporary songs are now listed as either trad or anon. I once called out Steve Romanoff on this issue, when he cited "Fiddler's Green" that way on a Schooner fare album.

I suspect that many performers either pick up the songs from others who don't know the source , are just too lazy to do their homework or don't want to pay royalties.
