Thread Name: A Liverpool Folk Song a Week
Subject: RE: A Liverpool Folk Song a Week
Will have a look at The Liverpool Lodger ballad; the major issue with these broadsides is finding appropriate tunes, but I'll see if I can find something appropriate that fits.

Hiya Phil - I do love Liverpool Lou, in fact I sing it as a lullaby to my kid. But being a Dominic Behan song, I can't quite bring myself to claim it for this project - very much a Dublin song for me, no matter how much I might wish it otherwise!

And Matthew - I'll be back in Liverpool shortly, so hopefully will be able to make it to the Lion and the December Woody Guthrie folk club for a change. Looking forward to catching up with everyone again!
