Hello Mathew
Thank you for your quick reply.About Fred Woodcock's Shanty songs I contacted his daughter who had given me the original info and when I called her to say you had asked if it could have been Dr.Puckett instead of Pollack, she agreed that it was Puckett. She said she thought he came from Pennsylvania and he had a summer home in Bobcaygeon Ont.where he recorded her father ,(my great uncle).She also told me that when Uncle Fred sang he always sat on the floor, and her maternal grandmother or Uncle Fred's mother-in-law would cry when he sang.The Woodcock's were great singers in the Irish tradition,and I was told by my grandmother (Uncle Emerson Woodcock's twin sister)thatwhen I sang it made her want to cry. Thank you again. Marg.
