Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A modern folk song of your choice
From the late fifties throughout the sixties there was a wealth of political songs from Scotland. There was a great outpouring of material reagarding the returning of the Stone of Scone, liberated fron Westminster Abbey. Pete Seegar paid for the production of Ding, Dong, Dollar, a recording on Folkways of Scottish Republican and anti-Polaris songs. The contribution to the CND movement was immense.
