Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
Pseudonymous, did you know that there's a recently installed statue in Dublin of the fictitious Molly Malone - heroine of a song written in Scotland in 1884?

She's now regarded by folkies as a historical figure, an amiable Irish prostitute of the seventeenth or eighteenth century, with a heart of gold.
