Thread Name: Kipling with the Tradition
Subject: RE: Kipling with the Tradition
That's not Kipling, Steve - rather one of ours: a genuine Appalachian field holler in the Javanese Pelog mode inspired by the North American Tree pocupines in Blackpool Zoo - so sort of Kiplingesque in a Rolling Down to Rio sort of way, & Bellamist on account of his appreciation of such idioms, much less his borrowing of them - even in his Kipling settings, like The Ballad of Minepit Shaw, which we do, but don't have time for in the present show.
