Sandy Lyr Req: the travelling people by MacColl (54* d) RE: the travelling people bij McColl 07 Dec 98

Hello: Some good books about the Scottish Travelers: Betsy Whyte's "Yellow on the Broom," Timothy Neat's "Summer Walkers," and James Porter and Herschel Gower's "Jeannie Robertson." Jeannie was one of the world's great ballad singers and Rounder now has a CD of her singing in its series of Lomax-recorded material. Check it out! There will also be several of her songs (no duplicates) on our upcoming Folk-Legacy CD of traditional ballads and songs. We collected from her in 1958, staying with her for a week. Absolutely changed our lives! We will also include a fine version of "Lang A-Growin'" sung for us by her daughter, Lizzie Higgins, who was also a fine singer. Those were the days, my friends. I miss 'em.
