Subject: RE: Help: Meaning of 'Chicken on a Raft'
Thanks to Andy G. for the list of definitions. I could have gotten them right if I had been able to consult my sources, namely my husband, Tom Hall.
Heard Lou Killen do a couple Tawney songs last Saturday--having to explain the terminology took almost as long as the song, sometimes.
Tawney is pretty amazing when it comes to writing music "in the tradition" -- take "Five Foot Flirt", his tribute to the music hall style.
