Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Morning is Charming / Hunting Song
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Morning is Charming / Hunting Song
On the topic of the anomaly of enjoying singing hunting songs while hating the sport itself, which was so cogently discussed above on this thread in July-Aug 05 by greg, malcolm, smiler, matthew... I remember Norma Waterson telling me during an overnight visit she & Martin made to Valerie & me in Cambridge in early 1975, to the effect that that was exactly her, & the Watersons', attitude. (A lot of the conversation was recorded with their agreement and published in Folk Review for March 1975, and I had thought that remark was included there; but on checking I find that it wasn't. Perhaps she said it while we were having dinner at the nearby Indian in Hills Road...)
