Thread Name: Trad. American Drinking Songs?
Subject: RE: Trad. American Drinking Songs?
Dick: You might want to check out my recordings of Frank Proffitt, North Carolina traditional singer. He sings "I'll Never Get Drunk No More," "Moonshine" (Come all you people if you want to hear of the kind of booze we make around here. It's made 'way back in the rocks and hills, where there's plenty of moonshine stills), and one that he wrote himself: "Blackberry Wine." The moonshine song, by the way, also shows up in Morris' Folksongs of Florida. I just got a paperback edition from the big remainder house, Edward Hamilton, Bookseller, in Falls Village, Connecticut. He has a web site. CLICK HERE. See you at Old Songs!
