GUEST,BANJO JOHNNY Land of Hope and Glory (27) RE: Land of Hope and Glory 07 Jun 00

Okay, thanks for the info on the links.

I'm not playing this on the banjo ... I'm standing up in front of 200-300 people in my tux at a wedding ceremony in St. Louis. Many of them are English. I have nothing against the English or anyone else. Sorry about that "possibly Irish" remark, but it was low key compared to some of the cracks directed at me.

Many of you don't seem to like the song, or at least the words. Personally I don't see anything wrong with it as an anthem. It seems patriotic and vaguely religious. Nevertheless, when you have this kind of engagement, you sing what is asked for and do your best.

I met a travelling Mudcat from Yorkshire called Bill Sables. He gave me this website address as a good place to find some folk tunes and make friends.
