GUEST,Mars Burnside Help: American songs from Scotland? (21) RE: Help: American songs from Scotland? 20 Oct 01


Thanks all for the input so far. Becky was kind enough to post the original question for me. I had not been aware of this web site. What we are looking for are songs that everyone thinks of as American, but which have Scottish roots. These will be perfomred at the Southern Ariozna Scottish Society's annual winter concert and will be part a program that includes highland dance, Scottish country dance, of of course bag pipes. We don't need words or music, just names. If they are songs we all know as part of our American musical background, we will be able to find the words or music if we don't already have them.

Barbara Allen is of course a good one and we will definitelly do some version or other.

Auld Lang Syne qualifies. Bobby Burns wrote it back in the 1700's but a lot of people think of it as American.

Four Nights Durnk is a possibility.

Any others.

Mars
