Thread Name: Origins: Common European Folksong/tunes
Subject: Origins: Common Western European Folksong/tunes
Living here in Kent (UK) I have become interested if there are any common links between tunes and songs from this side of the English Channel / La Manche and the other. I've tried all sorts of searches here and in google with little success in finding out anything much(there are some references to Lord Marlborough (UK) and Marlbrook (France) being common to a tune similar to 'He's a Jolly Good Fellow'). Does any one have any ideas or thoughts? Are there common Western European Songs?
