Thread Name: Origins: Let Union Be In All Our Hearts - Grange?
Subject: RE: Origins: Tu ra lie do
Maddy De Leon is a long-time member of the Pinewoods Folkmusic organization, and is very highly regarded for her knowledge of traditional music. I find the "whoever she might be" remark above to be unnecessarily rude.
By now, I assume all of you have become aware of the farmers' organization called the Grange. The Grange chapter in our town is still quite active, and Caroline and I joined the one in Huntington, Vermont, when we lived in that community some forty years ago. I don't have time to dig it out now, but the National Grange published a songbook in the latter part of the 19th century. I'll try to provide more information about it later.
