3 folk songs I’m going to learn

Filed under: — adrian @ 10:19 pm

I’ve been interesting in traditional folk songs for a number of years now. I took a class on Anglo-American ballads in 2002 and I had some interest before then. Here are three I’m going to learn:

  • “Bury Me Beneath the Willow”–melancholy and gorgeous.
    This version by Almeda Riddle.
  • “Two Sisters”–a famous ballad, but I really like this version with a refrain
    This version is by Horton Barker:
  • “Stick to the Craythur”/ “Humours of Whiskey”–great Irish drinking song.
    This version by Tim Lyons:

I’m really bad at learning lyrics, so that’ll take some work.
