Folk song has interested me since I was child. At first I was merely amused.
In my twenties and thirties, folk songs began to teach me who I was and from where I had
come. In my sixties, I find myself carried along in the flow of a living tradition
and keen to add to the stream.
The songs below were created years ago for purposes long gone. They have
been kept alive by singers down through the years, who took them up for their own purposes.
They have caught my attention. I am learning to sing them and mould them
into forms that are meaningful to me.
