GUEST,Mary Humphreys Help: Is Folk music in England Celtic? (55* d) RE: Help: Is Folk music in England Celtic? 29 Aug 02


In response to Dave Bryant's posting: There are some surprising links to be found: - the song, ' Peth Mawr Ydy'r Cariad' , collected in Anglesey at the turn of the 1900s and in the archives at St Ffagan's has a nearly identical tune ( though not the refrain ) to Harry Cox's 'The Cunning Cobbler'. Admittedly the words bear no relationship to each other, and the mood of each song is totally unlike the other. Now, did a Welsh language song transfer all the way to Norfolk? Or did it travel from Norfolk to Wales? Was Harry Cox a Celtic singer....?
