Thread Name: Origins: Springhill Disaster/Ballad of Springhill
Subject: RE: LYR REQ: Springhill disaster
Hi- Actually there were two big Springhill mine disasters-- the earlier one being in 1891. The database has two songs about that one as well as Peggy Seeger's better known one.

If you can't be sure whether to search for Springhill or Spring Hill, you could use the wild card and search for Spring*. or the phrase [Nova Scotia]. Or, as has been mentioned, disaster.
