Thread Name: Tune Req: British Canal/Waterway Songs
Subject: RE: Tune Req: British Canal/Waterway Songs
Congratulations on that great idea! I've married an English lass who had a canal a few yards from her back door, in Bradford on Avon, and she and I wish you great success. She says she wishes she'd paid more attention to the songs she used to hear on the Kennet and Avon. They called them canal songs and sang in a strong Wiltshire accent. She used to watch birds and listen to the old boys sing.
