Subject: RE: Help: Trads to recommend for singer?
I like to go to the recordings. Library of Congress Folkarts Division, Folkways Records, Rounder, Arhoolie, Gael Linn, Shanachie, early Columbia legacy or anywhere that you can hear a traditional performer do the song and go from there. Music on the printed page is like going to a lecture on heaven. Best to bypass the lecture and go to the real thing.
