Subject: RE: Goodnight Irene Origin
Josh White sang this song to me at a concert in Caird Hall Dundee when I was about one year old (around 1952!!)My parents failed to find a babysitter so took me along to the concert, Josh asked my name and when my dad told him it was Irene he sang it just for me. I still have the programme he signed for me that night.
