Thread Name: Mairi's Wedding-how to pronounce Mairi
Subject: RE: Mairi's Wedding-how to pronounce Mairi
When I first started to sing in folk clubs I was always being asked for the words to my songs, so I wrote them down and took along sheets of paper for the copying of them - I soon learned not to lend pens.
Now I have a collection of about 300 songs and still keep remembering more to write down. The latest one is clyde water, but I supose I should add Matty Groves too - always another song, and as I get older they get longer.
I started out with three verses and a chorus and gradually grew into the ballads, which seems to be a pretty standard progression amongst singers.
