Cliff McGann Req/ADD: French folk songs (172* d) RE: French Folksong 02 Sep 97


Obviously most people are aware of the wealth of French Folk Song from Canada. I am working on a review essay of French Canadian Folk Music and came across a company called Thirty Below www.qbc.clic.net\~thirtybe which specializes in Quebecois Folk Music. They are the best resource for folk song/trad music. A couple of other good sources are Marius Barbeau's Folk Songs of Old Quebec (Nat. Museum of Canada Bulletin #75) and his Folk Songs of French Canada Yale UP 1925 (if you can find a copy). People also forget about the strong French tradition in Cape Breton (Cheticamp etc.), Newfoundland (Port au Port), PEI and especially New Brunswick. So for those looking for a good reference to Acadian Maritime songs find a copy of La Fleur Du Rosier Univ. College of Cape Breton & National Museum of Civilization by Helen Creighton and Ronald Labelle. Some great songs with music and translations. I think you can get a copy through amazon.com
