Thread Name: Origins: Versions of Green Fields of America
Subject: Versions of Green Fields of America
Hi, I'm confused. Andy Irvine(?) did a version of this song (which I think may also be known as Green Fields of Canada) with Planxty; Mary Dillon did it with Deanta. I really like both; is one more traditional/"correct" than the other? Are there other good versions out there and where will I find them?
Also my source for word (maybe the DT?) says it is from "The Stone Fiddle" -- anyone have more info than that?
