Thread Name: Lyr Add: Swallow Song (R Farina)-Los Bilbilicos
Subject: RE: Swallow Song
The Swallow Song has always been my favotite Richard and Mimi Farina song. I also have it on The Joan Baez "Ring Them Bells" CD. The harmony between Joan and Mimi is breathtaking! I never realized, though, that it is of Sephardic origin and, being of Sephardic descent, makes it all the more interesting. It is such a haunting and beautiful song ... think I'll move it to the top of my "to learn" list ... moonchild
