Thread Name: Keith Marsden Songbook: Picking Sooty Blackberries
Subject: RE: Keith Marsden Songbook: Picking Sooty Blackberries
I know of Keith's songs Ron, I have little doubt that singers who don't would be happy to sing some of them if they had access to them
Some of us aren't going to be around much longer - nobody is going to be forever
I'd love to think anything I wrote would outlast me
Personally, I much prefer to sit down with a book to look for songs than hoe to pick one up at a crowded festival or in a noisy bar after a club night
When discussions like these happen, I find myself wanting to offer up a prayer of thanks for the 'Public Domain' status of folk songs (pity I'm an atheist and have no-one to talk to up there !!
I've taken a bit of stick over passing the songs I think worthwhile on to others lately
