Thread Name: Sam Henry's Songs of the People
Subject: RE: Sam Henry's Songs of the People
Q transcribed the song-index above. "The Star of Moville" is in Section C15, page 276 of Sam Henry's "Songs of the People". Three sources are listed above who may still have remaindered copies of the book - Down Home Music, Lani Herman (Lani H) and John Moulden. If you register as a Mudcat member you will be able to use the PM (Personal Message) facility to contact John Moulden. (Ten-year-old references, so don't hold out much hope).

Otherwise Abebooks has a hardback copy in the USA priced at £184.50 ($US295.00) here

Scallta Media appears to have succeeded to the Ulstersongs catalogue here Alas, no copies there but lots of other interesting stuff.

If you can't find a library copy, I can scan to produce a hard copy. My scanner doesn't link to this machine, so I can't email the result, but if you login and PM me, I cam mail it. The song is twelve eight-line verses, so typing it in is not an option!

Good luck.
