Subject: RE: Traditional Music: Where are we going wrong?
Sorry to wander off thread a bit ,but can anyone tell me the name of the theme tune to the 1950s TV series "Para Handy" ( with Duncan MaCrae / Roddy MacMillan ) ?? I can play it on guitar ,but can't remember what it's called ! Incidentally , this is one of the many tunes / songs that influenced me as a ten-year-old at the time ; where have all these gone to today ?? Do modern schoolchildren get "exposed" to Westering Home / Strawberry Fair / The Ash Grove /Widdecombe Fair et al in this day & age ?? Teach Your Children ( Well !!) .
