Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
Hi Jon,
The list wasn't meant to be definitive. I missed off all of Harry Clifton's and Joe Geoghegan's songs that entered oral tradition. jag only wanted some suggestions to look at. There are probably plenty of others on Bruce Olsen's website.

Apologies re 'Cooper of Norfolk'. I did say the list was off the top of my head. Actually it was only found in oral tradition in Scotland, not England. Check out 'Johnnie Cooper', versions in John Bell, Greig Duncan and Peter Buchan's Secret Songs.
