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
