Stephen Foster, Hard Times Come Again No More

Thought the community might like to see this, a note I have been sending out, with a link to our little virtual project. I play a small part in it, a musical partnership with contributions from all over the USA, Australia, the Isle of Man, and here in Yorkshire...

It is our version of the Stephen Foster song, Hard Times Come Again No More - published in 1854. If you do the Youtube search you will find many other versions, and connections made with the Depression or the current economic crisis. Very much a 'parlour song', in its cadences and diction - but that date of publication always links the song, for me, with my research on the Irish Famine.

We, the autoharp community, are just considering another one of these international sing songs.

And I notice that the link, above, to the video of the Stephen Foster song, Hard Times - above - does not work.

I think that the organiser put up a second tidier video, with a different Youtube link.

This link should work

That was very moving and enjoyable. A super project! Well done to all involved and thanks to Patrick for posting the clip.
