Subject: RE: DTStudy: Step It Out Nancy
On their album the Dayhills (an Irish-American trio from the Upper Midwest) identified "Step It Out, Mary" as a traditional song in the public domain. I'd never heard it before and took them at their word.
If I'd known of Sean McCarthy's authorship at the time, I'd never have suggested the idea of a rewrite to Robin.
