Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Collier Lad- Annie Cosgrove
The style of the singer and the short sample make it difficult to identify the tune. The style of that short sample reminds me of some of the Scottish traveller singers. Travellers are noted for stringing together fragments of ballads to make effectively new songs. Plenty of examples of this in MacColl and Seeger.
