Hello!   I am trying to find a poem, and only have part of a line. It has "I saw a woman trudging through it all, her babe was at her breast" . The woman stops and kneels down, unwrapping her baby to find that it was dead.   Does anyone know this poem??

It's worse than beer bottles..it gets bigger!

Seriously, I mentioned the idea of limiting these to 100 earlier...how about if I sing "The Good Peanuts" and we start a new thread?

Since I just got such great help in finding the words for "No Hiding Place," I'll bring along my singing partner, Carol, and ask everybody to join in on a wonderful old gospel tune. We may both play autoharps for this one, and I may even try a break, but I could use another couple of good breaks on it.

Bill - the harmony version that I heard was done by a local folk duo calling themselves Keltia (I inquired and they told me that they put a K at the beginning rather than a C to avoid pronunciation errors from other people). The woman, Lisl Harker, overdubbed her own voice to create a two-part harmony.

I don't think anyone has yet tried "Un Canadien Errant" which is in the DT. According to the book by Edith Fulton-Fowke and Richard Johnson the words were written by M.A. Gerin-Lajoie to the folk tune "Si tu te mets anguille" after the Rebellions of 1837. According to the DT it was written while the author was in exile in N.Y. state.

I would crave your indulgence for a second song in French in a much more lively tempo. "Aupres de ma blonde." Written during the wars with the Dutch and sung by every French soldier since. I'll use McNally's Extra Ale as my basic fuel since loudness counts more than accuracy for this one.

Sorry for the confusion, Whippoorwill, I should have explained: "The Ryans and The Pittmans" is in the DT under the title "We'll Rant and We'll Roar". Most Newfoundland song books I've seen use the name R&P but WR&WR is also common. The music is exactly the same as in Spanish Ladies. A search under "we'll rant and we'll roar" also turned up Yankee Whalermen (same tune) and Brisbane Ladies (same tune but slower and in a minor key).

Whippoorwill, I've often made the claim that the salt water coursing in my veins is what kept my hair from going grey. I'd like to sing along with you on Spanish Ladies but forgive me if I lapse into "The Ryans and the Pittmans"

G'day, I'll claim a turn here and keep Alison busy. If she has her keyboard and whistles Foster & Alison will do "The Night Visit" (Then who are you my pretty fair maid, and who are you my honey etc.), each singing the male & female parts as appropriate, instrumental break before the penultimate verse. Then with a very quick change from keyboard to whistle straight into a reel "Spatter the Dew".

As the song is a little riské I'll wear a capo and practise safe music.

Cheers,

Ron, hm.. something from my neck of the woods. I'm not sure what would qualify, seeing as I live in sunny New Jersey. :) However, I will sing "Reinventing the Wheel", a gorgeous song done in folk-style by a two man band called Burro - both members went to my high school, and were senior and junior, respectively, when I was a frosh. Alison, of course we're still speaking, no harm done - and thanks for the bodhran accompaniment. I can't provide guitar, unfortunately, but I could probably whip up a harmony for you on flute for "Carolan's Ramble To Cashel".

Hey, Frank (Francois) Phillips! The Moosehead Beer and the Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale that I've been drinking since our little concert strated are helping me get braver in the company of so many accomplished folkies. Why don't you join me in "V'la le bon vent", a traditional French Canadian folk song - for the uninitiated, the words and Frank(Francois)'s comments are in an earlier thread. Let's shoot for the energy of the Ian & Sylvia version but drop the English accent.

Whippoorwill,
I will join in that one, although I learned it as 'They are shifting Daddy's bones to build a sewer'.

The story behind the song...When they first started building sewers in London they, of course, built them for the rich folks in the West End. They didn't want to dump the sewage, which in those days was untreated, straight into the Thames because it would stink up the whole of London. So they piped it all across North London, right through the working class East End (Where both the song and I come from) and dumped it into Barking Creek.

This turned Barking Creek into an open sewer which emptied into the Thames way downstream.

Barking Creek thus aquired it's other name of 'Shits Creek' and is the original creek where the saying "Up the Creek" came from.

Just thought you'd all like to know this important folklore gem :-)

Bert.
