GUEST,ollaimh Songs you shouldn't sing in UK folk club (375* d) RE: Songs you shouldn't sing in UK folk club 08 Feb 10

i love where have all the flowers gone just when another war breaks out. i sing it with a slow harp accompanyment and try to do it slow and prayer like. i admit i don't sing it any other time.

bob dylan? how about eric bogles" i don't sing any bob dylan" as a response! however i do like a couple of dylan songs.. "visions of joanna", but i wouldn't sing it in a folk club.

and irish rebel songs, of course as a son of the gael i sing them all the time, whether people want to hear them or not(i.e. before some english and english canadian audiences)

most of the irish rebal songs come from the 1916 -1922 period or before. anyone who calls the irish aspiration to freedom to be terrorist is a racist fascist and thats that. gaels have a right o self determination and the songs are part of that right. if the songs of the fight for independence bother you you ought to look inside and find why you hate the gaels.
