Subject: RE: Keith Marsden Songbook: Picking Sooty Blackberries
Thank all of you for responses. Yes, of course, my first choice would be to purchase a copy of the book, but I have had no luck finding a copy at any price. I am not considering publishing it; I want to read it. I am not a professional singer and cannot imagine making a recording or being paid; I have heard several sung, including a couple for which I did not catch a title. There are ones that could be learned, to be sung, on Facebook, but not as many as in the book. Learning more about them, and singing the songs together with friends, are my goals here.
I did write to Val Marsden on Messenger, though I do not know if she uses it, and will try following up with other members of Cockersdale.
