Thread Name: Is there a 'Childs' songbook
Subject: RE: Is there a 'Childs' songbook
I referred the OP to:

(1) the Child Ballad Index site and
(2) EFDSS publications online ordering.

That covers all relevant requirements such as Bronson's tatty tunes, other tunes, texts and chords.

Then I noticed the request for 'Fairport material'.
For that you google as cyberspace is dripping with it.

All the rest is extraneous, and thus unnecessary tripe to a poster with a specific request, though s/he might have been amused by my Andy Irvine story (or possibly not).

Especially the bollocks about gender specific language use delivered in a highly patronising and sexist manner, none of which had anything whatsoever to do with the original request.

Who's fighting? I answered a question. End of.
