Subject: RE: Folklore: Songs, poems etc about ploughmen/boys
Onen of the best known songs regarding ploughboys is Plooman Laddies sung by Elizibeth Stewart which she learnt from her aunt Lucy from Fetterangus, also The Rovin' Ploughboy attributed to John Strachan a mole catcher. Also if you go on Mudcat's song index you can get a number of songs relating to the ploughman/boy.

PS If you want to hear songs relating to the farming community listen to a cd by Jock Duncan called Ye Shine Whaur Ye Stan, also listen to cds from the Fife Traditional Singing Weekend, which can be obtained from Springthyme Music Fife.

Cheers
