Subject: RE: BBC Radio4 - Morpurgo's Folk Journeys
incidentally ,i am in a state of shock ,i went busking today in Bantry, and thought i would sing some english love songs. well first a guy cam by and sked me about the song , isang,and said it sounded like something martin carthy would sing so i chatted a bit more and he said he saw martin carthy in ballydehob 2 years ago , i said really well i organised that concert. so we talked a bit more and i started playing and sang adieu swet lovely nancy, game of all fours, seeds of love,
and    i could see a woman listening for about 15 minutes. she came over and said.. your a great singer, here something for christmas and slipped something in my pocket, i said thanks, when she had gone, i looked ,i could not believe it, it was 2 50 euro notes.what a kind generous person
, i am still shocked, i have never been given anything like that, somebody liked a folk singer singing love songs.
