Thread Name: Anyone watching My Son Jack?
Subject: RE: Anyone watching My Son Jack?

Thank you. I understand this is something like Cornelis Vreeswijk singing Bellman. Bringing together the texts of the poet and the music skills of the artist, the products of such projects can be a joy to listen to. They do tend to lean towards the melancholy, but that may inherent to the combination of music and poetry.

I'll try to keep an eye on the other thread to see if more about it comes up. In the mean time, I must say that the search of the Rudyards for their son, followed by that final report, has the making of a folk song itself.
