Subject: RE: Origins: Old Rosin the Bow / Rosin the Beau
A little irony before I give further info, my grandmother can be heard singing RTB on the BL Sound Archive website. Her name is Annie Sykes. In Britain the song is seen as more of a 'community song' than a traditional folk song because it was so well-known, and so I hadn't taken much notice of her singing it, to my shame.
