Thread Name: John Reilly, traveller singer.
Subject: RE: John Reilly, traveller singer.
Can I also draw attention to the School of Scottish Studies aptly named 'Kist o' Riches' site, which has a goldmine of Scots field recordings and an excellent listening facility
Search 'Travellers' there and you will find all the singers that are featured on the Tennessee site plus many more, though I haven't had time to check if all Ken's recordings are there
One thing that is indisputable is that, without the Travellers our access to our song tradition would be very much poorer than they are - the same goes for the work put in by Goldstein, Henderson and Lomax....
