Rob O Some "teachable" info on Irish Folk (38) RE: Some 16 Sep 98

Thanks to all who've helped so far,

I knew that Spring Hill was a Canadian song, but I didn't have any details on it, though I did know that many of the miners were immegrants from Ireland. Anyone have more detials on it?

On Kilkelly, is that sort of ballad a good representation of "traditional" music, or was it uncommon at the turn of the century to sing such a piece about coming to America and not returning?

Thanks for all the help,
