Subject: RE: 2003 FSGW Getaway - ideas for program
How about a "I never knew that was a Child Ballad" workshop, looking at some of the songs that survived in the tradition but in a very altered and/or shortened state. Things like I'm A Rover, Seldom Sober (The Grey Cock), and Weile, weile, waile (The Cruel Mother). Many other example from both sides of the Atlantic.

WassaiL! V
