Linda Mattson Songs that surprisingly _are_ trad (82* d) RE: Songs that surprisingly _are_ trad 27 Mar 05


From Mudcat threads it looks like the song Aura Lea (popular in US Civil War times) was written in 1861, but there is also mention of a British song "Nora Lee" so I wonder.

Perhaps the song's old but not Traditional (using the definition that Traditional songs are songs with no known author.) However, I didn't find anything written about the tune.
