GUEST,Dazbo at work Foreign Takes On English Tunes/Songs (22) Foreign Takes On English Tunes/Songs 19 Jun 08

By foreign I'm thinking non-Anglophone and English Tunes/Songs as originating from England.

I've got quite a lot of CDs by English "folk" groups who use foreign tunes (taranatellas, schottiches, polksas, etc etc) and quite a few CDs by foreign bands who sometimes use Irish or Scottish tunes but I can only think of one CD that's got an English tune on it. I've heard that, for example, Jump at the Sun by John Kirkpatrick is popular in Italy.

Do you know of any foriegners that have recorded English tunes or songs? What do you think of them? Do they still sound English (whatever that might mean) or have they been assimilated into their styles?

Interested of Sheffield;-)
