Thread Name: Dilemma with 'Siul A Ruin'
Subject: RE: Dilemma with 'Siul A Ruin'
LNL, I sent an email to Linda describing this discussion, including a link, and asking if I may send you her email address. Maybe we'll get lucky and she'll join in the conversation here. I recognize this song from my childhood, as one my father sang. So often I didn't learn the complete title to songs, though I learned the words, and this was one of those. As soon as someone mentioned "Buttermilk Hill" I knew which song it was, and the DT confirms it.
I started a post here earlier, but it seems to have disappeared--in it I described how Linda worked for several years at the historic Federal Hall in lower Manhattan. When she appeared in the rotunda to sing it was like a quiet magic descended on the place. I suspect more than a few stock brokers in their three-piece suits slipped in there for some peaceful songs during the day.
