Thread Name: london folk songs
Subject: RE: london folk songs
thanks again pavane.there was a huge thread about the black velvet band and a number of london versions.not wanting to divert from the original thread but although from london my background is irish.i keep finding songs that are celebrated in ireland have an english version or source that i've never heard.the merry ploughboy springs to mind.anyway that is the start of another thread.i wonder if english folk singers are intimidated by songs that have such high irish profile.put black velvet band into youtube and you'll find hundreds of people doing the irish version.
i'm definitely gong to do an english version.anyway bring on the london songs
