Thread Name: Burns as Music
Subject: RE: Burns as Music
Enter "Burns" & search in the data base there's a large number of his songs listed that many may not even know that some of them are from him.

JulieF, I have to agree with you on Jean Redpath's interpretations, she brings them across as more of parlor songs which may be more accurate but it's more than I care for,

If you're finding an interest in Scottish poets like Burns & their songs don't neglect others like Tannahill-the ploughman poet ("Oh, Are You Sleeping Maggie") or James Duff ("Lassie With The Yellow Coatie") or the many others. Burns will keep you busy for now though.
Good luck
Barry
