Rob O Some "teachable" info on Irish Folk (38) RE: Some 17 Sep 98

Thanks for all the info so far!

John, can you expand on some of those ideas of Kilkelly, Ireland? You mentioned pre-marital conception and abortion as topics in the song, and I think I missed their presence... or perhaps they are in lines omitted from my version of the song.

I have to admit that Kilkelly is in my repertoire and I was planning on doing it whether or not it fit. At the risk of bragging (I'm so proud of this it hurts) I played it for my Physics class since the bugged me and my guitar was in my room instead of my car, but the bell rang to end class before I finished the song. All 25 kids sat transfixed till I was done.

It's probably the one song I really feel like I do justice.

Rob O
