GUEST,Bob Blair PermaThread: Free On-Line Trad Folk Performances (65* d) RE: Free On-Line Trad Folk Performances 20 May 19

Geoff Lawes :: Thanks for the huge list if links - must have taken you hours and hours to compile - much appreciated.

Could I offer a minor correction to your list of performers, You have Elisabeth Cronin down as Scottish.. ...How I wish I could claim her for the Scots - she's Irish, as I'm sure you know

Against Caroline Hughes you say that there are no on-line recordings available yet, but you can hear her on "the Song Carriers" (see above)at the following points

Prog 2   Track 8    The Cuckoo

Prog 3   Track 3    Liltin

Prog 10 Track 8    Barbra Allan

I'll maybe see if I can isolate these tracks ans put them up on here.

If folk then decide they would like to hear more of Caroline then they couldn't do better than to buy or download her songs from Rod Stradling at Musical Traditions. The download at 4 is a bargain and comes complete with notes and comments
Caroline Hughes
Sheep-Crook and Black Dog
2 CDs, 48 page booklet, 90 tracks, 142 mins duration.

This legendary Gypsy singer is thought by many to be the finest exponent of the art. In addition, we have a few songs from her husband, brother-in-law, daughter, and Emily Baker, another singer in their Traveller group. These are the rarely heard 1963 and 1966 recordings made by Ewan MacColl, Peggy Seeger and Charles Parker, which we're proud to make widely available for the first time. All Caroline Hughes' best-known songs are here, plus many more including eight never before heard, which have been allocated new Roud Numbers. If the fragmentary nature of some of her songs displeases you, just enjoy the wonderful tunes, the variable verse lengths, long and short lines, and her brilliant musicianship.

Buy it and enjoy

It might well be that the complete MacColl/Seeger/Parker recordings could be posted but it would be good if folk initially supported Rod Stradlings Mustrad efforts and paid for his work
