Subject: RE: Who are the experts on Appalachian songs
Sorry. You posted your list while I was compiling my posting about the Roud Numbers. All I can say, as an enthusiast rather than an expert, there are only two titles in there that I don't recognise. Otherwise they look very kosher and very interesting.

You say you learned these from people in Virginia etc. If said people have never been collected from before, what you've got could be a very worthwhile haul indeed.

I'd urge you to get them all recorded ASAP, digitally if possible, and then find a suitable archive in which to deposit them. The Library of Congress perhaps?
