Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Songs you sang at the Getaway
My list of things I remember singing at the Getaway (though I imagine I probably sang other things informally in small groups as well):

Anderson's Coast (by John Warner, learned from Danny Spooner)--Friday evening singaround

Yedid Nefesh (words by Rabbi Eliezer Azikri [15th century]--two different settings, in Hebrew)--Songs in 3/4 time

Fountain Filled With Blood (by Joan Boyd, from the singing of Helen Schneyer)--Occupational Hazards (or was it at Problematic Change?--something at the Theatre Barn)

Federal Soldier (from the singing of Ruth Pershing, who attributes it to Maggie Hammons)--Immigrants and Emigrants

Land of Virginia (Robert Burns)--Immigrants and Emigrants

Delia's Gone (my own version, based loosely on Tim Eriksen's version)--Ballads I

Shto mi e Milo (Bulgarian song)--with Carly Gewirz at Saturday night concert

"She took him by the bridle hair" (a version of Child #299, Trooper and the Maid)--from the singing of C.C. "Lum" Pack of Mingo County, WV by way of the singing of Helena Triplett, now of Monongalia County, WV)--Ballads II

Tsangala da gogona (trad. Georgian)--Foreign languages

Pharaoh (from the singing of Mrs. Sidney Carter of Senatobia, Miss.)--Sunday evening concert

Kitty Alone ("Saw a crow flying low") (from the singing of Howie Mitchell)--Sunday evening singaround
