Subject: RE: Lyr Add: All Through The Night (another versio
1. I meant the Ceiriog comparison to John Denver as a compliment. Mr. D was a very sincere fellow who wrote some nice, very singable songs - we have "Follow Me" sung at our wedding!!
2. I looked at Moliannwn - I don't think I can sing about robins, etc.
3. How about suggestions for a good Welsh shanty, something like my favority, "Rolling Home?" I'm looking for a song to teach folks who know no Welsh.
P.S. Found my great-grandfather (born about 1823) on the Welsh 1881 census on the web. He was listed as an inn-keeper, so I would like to think that he might have held the Welsh equivalent of jams.
