Traditional Irish Music
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.
