Lynn Help: Need some songs!!!! - Adirondacks (10) RE: Help: Need some songs!!!! - Adirondacks 10 May 02


Try Bob Bethke's 'Adirondack Voices'. Also, Harold Thompson's ground-breaking book, 'Body, Boots and Britches' has many texts from songs (some from the Adirondacks), though no tunes. In my locally produced collection, Folk Songs of UPstate New York, I included things I learned from both Chris Shaw and Bill SMith (GREAT sources, both of 'em), as well as other stuff drawn from NY Folklore (the earlier incarnation of that journal tended to include a great deal more music than the current NYF Quarterly does). Good luck. Sounds like fun!
