Subject: RE: Keith Marsden Songbook: Picking Sooty Blackberries
As Ray said higher up the thread, thankfully Keith's songs ARE still being sung: usually hear several of them at Sidmouth Folk Festival in the "Middle Bar Singers" sessions (that's unaccompanied singing for anyone who cares to attend). The "Funeral Song" has been immortalised with that line "They had to send for far more chairs" and every chair in the room being stacked up into a precarious tower: I hope Keith would approve! Wish I could post the photo.
