Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Flower of Sweet Strabane
Such a lovely song. I have sung a version of it too. The novelist Angela Carter was recorded singing this song in Cheltenham at the folk club there in 1967. I have bene researching Carter's influence from the folk songs she sang for some years now. If the Direct Descendant of Martha Ramsay who made this last post can tell us any more about the song, and/or post the 'proper version' to which she or he refers, it would be amazing!
