Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
Jon, you are as much a scholar as anyone else on this forum and we welcome your input. There is as you must know an enormous amount of respect and gratitude to you and your family for preserving and more importantly keeping alive this tradition and these songs.

Nobody on any of these threads has made any attempt whatsoever to exclude (or deny or downplay) what was happening in Ireland and it is ridiculous to make such a suggestion!!!! In fact many of your adversaries have gone out of their way to praise your work and all you can do is call them names.
