Subject: RE: london folk songs
thanks for the great info.taking each in turn
1 thanks parvane i had no idea all round my hat was connected to london
2 thaks leadfingers will check cosmotheka out
3thanks parvane i understand the salford scotsman sentiment. i recently heard damien barber and mike wilson sing the joy of living a song by maccoll that i did not know.on the basis of this song alone the man was a genius and therefore sweet thames is in.
not heard of three cripples.would love it if the black velvet band had o london connection.can anyone add anymore info?
4tthanks astray.not heard bob roberts will keep a look out on youtube and ebay
thanks breznev.would love to hear them.what does pm me mean?
6 thanks jack campin.not much luck.i sing and play guitar.i dont read music so i need to hear a version of the broadside ballad to have a go e.g a guy named raymond crooke has put a huge no. of child ballads on youtube. and thats a great help
7thanks quokka.one of my favourite songs but as you say perhaps too contemporary to be thought of as traditional
