Subject: Mudcat online singaround?
From: GUEST,Chris Lamb
Date: 05 Jun 20 - 06:01 AM

Link posted Mondays for the week's Mudcat Worldwide Song Circle

Topic: Mudcat Worldwide Singaround - open for cocktails and conversation half an hour earlier Time:Monday 12:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
8 PM London, 3 PM New York, Noon Los Angeles, 5 AM Tuesday in Sydney.






Back in March, on a thread that's now closed, Joe Offer said: "And I think it would be really nice if we could have a weekly Mudcat singaround online."
Was this suggestion taken up? It would be great to put a face and a voice to some of the regular Mudcatters and to hear them sing, on Zoom, perhaps. I'd love to hear Jim Carroll sing again, for example, as I haven't heard him or Pat McKenzie sing since Critics Group days.

The many singarounds that have sprung up since lockdown started have brought together some fine singers from across the seas and enabled us to hear those we would never have been able to listen to in normal times.
Can the Mudcat community respond to this opportunity?

Okey-dokey. I think we have a minyan. Well, it's supposed to be 10 adult, circumcised males, but we'll make do with what we've got.

Monday at 8 PM London time. That's Noon here in California, 3 PM at Mudcat Central in Pennsylvania, and 5 AM in Sydney.



I'll host. I'll post the link to the Zoom session here in this thread just one hour before we begin, and I'll open hp half an hour early at 8:30 PM for cocktails and conversation. There will be a waiting room, and I reserve the right to reject people I don't recognize - so please use your Mudcat names. Sorry.

This should be fun!

When you enter Zoom, you will usually be give the opportunity to give the name you want to be known by for the session. If you have not used Zoom since June 1, you may be asked to update to the new, encrypted Version 5 of Zoom. It seems to be quite stable, so just OK the download and there you go - good reason to show up early, though.

I'm looking forward to this.

I will post the link in this thread Monday, an hour before the gathering. I will also send links by personal message Sunday, to members who post in this thread. If you've pasted anything above, you'll get a pm from me Sunday. Sorry, I can't send personal messages to Guests, so you'll have to look here Monday for the link.
I will change the meeting ID every week for security purposes.
I can't handle anything that comes in Monday, because I'm teaching a Class Mondays and have just half an hour free after the class.
Looking forward to seeing you Monday.

Yes that’s right Amergin, for security reasons the new link is only put up about an hour before the start each week, so less likely to attract gatecrashers.

I think it’s even better than the old HearMe (which I remember very fondly) because we can see each other too!
Joe Offer has of course gone another step further and often searches for and adds info and words for the song being sung, in the chat box in real time... which sets this Mudcat Singaround apart from all others I’ve been involved with.

Mudcat is once again in the vanguard of new ideas!
(I wonder whether the wonderful Max might join us one week?!)

This thread is getting pretty long, but I think I'd like to preserve it as the go-to place for the singaround.
Feel free to post whatever you like here (especially lyrics to songs you have sung or will sing), but I'll probably move most messages over two weeks old to our overflow thread (click).

I'm having the best time at this Monday singaround. My big black dog Madeleine loves it, too, and she often comes into my office to listen while we're singing.

Is Lawson alluding to Adam Lindsay Gordon's romance with Jane Bridges throughout the poem?

From: GUEST,Gerry
Date: 21 Jul 20 - 05:31 AM

SPB, the reference to Gordon in the 4th stanza is, indeed, to the poet Adam Lindsay Gordon, but the interpretation I've heard is that the poem has more to do with Lawson's relationship with Hannah Thorburn. She died just six weeks before Lawson & his wife, Bertha, arrived back in Australia from two years in England.

Gerry and all who are just discovering Mudcat: You need to join (write to Joe@Mudcat.org). Guests are welcome to search and use the site, but membership does offer a few extra perks. And by all means, poke around and find the lyrics we already have here. It'll save you a little time reposting them. For example, Gerry, Lawson's poem Do You Think I Do Not Know is an example already in the DT. You are liable to find lyrics there you want to start using!

Good to see all of the new names and faces yesterday.

Gerry, I also found the thread discussing Tumba-bloody-rumba and posted a link back to your post here, but putting the lyrics there would be helpful.

For newcomers to Mudcat, we have the "Lyrics & Knowledge Search" for keywords and song titles. Use as few words as you think will bring up results and if it doesn't work the first time Max added a supersearch that hoovers up stuff all over Mudcat and the Internet.

If there are songs posted here, they will eventually be moved to a thread for that particular song. So, free to post lyrics here, and I'll move them in good time.
We don't currently have a way of correcting the Digital Tradition Folk Song Database (DT), and maybe it's a good idea to leave it as Dick Greenhaus left it when he died.
I am gradually trying to ensure that there is a thread to cover every song or family of songs in the DT. The best place to look for correct lyrics is in the threads, not in the DT. If the lyrics in a thread have proper title, songwriter, and source information, you can be reasonably sure they're correct. If the title is allcaps and bold and large, that means it has been reviewed for correctness.

-Joe-

I will use this thread as the permanent notification thread for the singaround. As messages get out of date, I'll move them to the overflow thread or to song threads.

Joe, the lyrics you posted in chat for The Swaggies Have All Waltzed Matilda Away are fine, with just two corrections. In the last verse, "Coolies" should be "Koori". Koori is the name the Aboriginal people of New South Wales use to describe themselves. And the fellow who wrote the song was Alistair Hulett, with a double t at the end. Thanks again for putting the show on.

A very spooky day of songs. Lots of good singing, some of it moderately scary. My house generator lasted all day on a 6-gallon tank of gas, and the mains power finally came on as our singaround was ending.
One woman from the San Francisco Bay area sang a "Broken Token" song. When she introduced the song, she said it was written by Vikki Appleton Fielden. I started to introduce Vikki to the singer, but Vikki shushed me. So, we all held our tongues while the singer sang Vikki's song - and we all got a good laugh out of it afterwards. The woman sang very well, and Vikki was thrilled to have somebody sing her song.
Thank you all for a wonderful gathering.
Back to the usual times for next week's gathering. This daylight savings discrepancy lasts only one week, and then the US and UK are back in sync again.

I’ve not been logging the songs I do on Mudcat Zoom. On 16th I did a poem “November” by Thomas Hood.which is listed as “No Sun, no moon”

Nice to see that someone else sang “More hills to climb”, it’s a great song that I have done previously on Mudcat Zoom.

On another note, “Andy’s gone with cattle” sounds interesting. If that’s a parody, anyone have the lyrics to share?

Thanks, SPB. Bradfordian, Andy's Gone with Cattle is not a parody, it's a poem written by the Australian poet Henry Lawson in 1888, set to a tune collected by John Manifold.

The lyrics to Andy's Gone with Cattle are in the Digital Tradition. Maybe /mudcat.org/@displaysong.cfm?SongID=286 will get you there.

There are a couple of mondegreens in the DT version. "cheat" should be "cheek", and "tomorrow" should be "torrents".

Waddon Pete has a special talent for marking events, as evidenced by his In Memoriam Permathread. He tells me our singaroud on November 30 will be our 25th singaround. I had no idea we had done so many. Every one of them has been delightful - and almost all of them have lasted 5 hours!
Here's hoping we will have many more, even after we're able to get together in person to sing.

Well done Gerry. I wonder if singers could make an effort to start off by naming their song. I don't get much out of a long rambling intro if I don't know what song they are talking about. And Gerry's not the only one taking notes, lots of us are collectors wanting to add to our bag .

Thanks, Sandman. At https://afolksongaweek.wordpress.com/2016/09/02/week-261-the-hawk-and-the-crow/ it's called The Hawk and the Crow, but it says

"I learned this from one of my absolute favourite singers, Kevin Mitchell, via his 1977 Topic LP Free and Easy. Kevin calls it ‘Two Strings on a Bow’, and he learned it from Anne Brolly of Dungiven, County Derry. The LP notes say

American singers call this song The Bird’s Courtship or The Leather Winged Bat."

So evidently this is a song of many titles.

...The Clouds Gwine Roll Away, which I had just sung!

Hi, Everyone - I've been having trouble with blind carbon copy, and I'm not sure you all got the email. Or maybe you got it twice. If a couple of people could let me know here that they got the email, I would feel better.


We have Solstice and Christmas and all sorts of celebrations. Let's celebrate them all and have a good time doing it.
The next Mudcat Worldwide Singaround is Monday December 21, at 8 PM London time. That's noon here in California, and 3 PM in New York, and early Tuesday in Australia and New Zealand. I had no idea what time it starts in Israel (Shlomo says it's 10 PM), but we have singers from there, too.
Come join us! We open doors half an hour before the scheduled time, sing for about 5 hours, and then chat until people are done chatting. All in all, it's a wonderful time. Some people just listen - that's OK, too. Hope you can come.


Link will be posted here a couple of hours before the singaround. If you'd like to be on the email list, contact me.

CAULD WINTER
Iain Ingram
Cauld Winter’s here again, and the days are short and dreary
Wi’ bitter winds an’ snaw, that aye chill the hearts o’ many
For some auld folk their plight’s a bare existence tae sustain
Wi’ scrimpin’ through necessity, and strugglin’ on their ain

Cauld Winter’s here again, aye severe an’ penetratin’
Nae quarter will it gie the hameless or forsaken
Nor pensioner who canny heat his hoose and eat an’ all
The frailest o’ society are aye the first tae fall

Cauld Winter’s here again, come are days when many suffer
In damp and draughty hames, on the road, doon in the gutter
A time when those wi’ troubled lives through hardship and despair
Need a helpin’ hand frae their fellow man tae greet the Spring once mair

Cauld Winter’s here again, ah but we’ve nae cause for girnin’
We’ve heat and comforts all, for it’s luxury we live in
Compared tae those o’ lesser means wi’ nae escape, nae favours free
Hinging oan tae life, prayin’ they’ll survive – or pey cauld Winter’s fee.

                _________________________

SUFFER THE CHILDREN
Eric Bogle

                Suffer the children to come unto me
                The man who said that died on Calvary
                And as we remember this day of His birth
                The children are suffering all over the Earth


From the African jungles to the hills of Vietnam
There are thin hungry children, black, yellow and brown
They’re starving to death on their millet and rice
And they don’t know Santa Claus, or Jesus Christ


                Suffer the children to come unto me
                The man who said that died on Calvary
                And as we remember this day of His birth
                The children are suffering all over the Earth


As you sit at your tables at this Christmastide
And you stuff the roast ham, and the turkey inside
Won’t you think of those children in lands far away
And the two thousand children who will die today?


                Suffer the children to come unto me
                The man who said that died on Calvary
                And as we remember this day of his birth
                The children are suffering all over the earth.

The painted veil
1
I’ve seen small children die of pain and hunger
Those little sticks of human misery
And in this day and age I often wonder
How long it takes to end such tragedy
For something is wrong when we can close our eyes
or turn and walk away
chorus:

Lets change with the times
our reasons and our rhythms
reviewing how we think by what we hear
to live out our days in many different ways
will we still be the same this time next year
2
I tremble when I think of Hiroshima
Support the cause for mindless wars to cease
Condemn the men of power and ambition
And all who’d threaten everlasting peace
For God only knows there s’ so much to be done
We’ve sins enough to bear

chorus:
3
Beware of fools and words of doubtful wisdom
The hawk who masquerades as gentle dove
The bigot who professes to be Christian
And murders in the name of God above
To look at this world beneath the painted veil
May break your heart and soul

chorus:
4
Someday we’ll hear the voice of understanding
Though many years may pass without a sound
When suffering throughout the world is ended
And bitter seeds are cast on stony ground
When frontiers are gone and we are all as one         
When no man stands alone

chorus:   

Music and lyrics by Iain Ingram                                 

Song notes:
I wrote this song many years ago during the period known as
”The Cold War” .
While the threat of nuclear war has been greatly reduced,
the world in this day and age remains a dangerous place                                                                                                                                                          This makes the words of the song as relevant today
as they were when I first penned them

Freedom Come All Ye   
by Hamish Henderson

        
Roch the wind in the clear day’s dawin
Blaws the cloods heelster-gowdie ower the bay
But there’s mair than a roch wind blawin
Ower the great glen o the world the day.
It’s a thocht that wad gar oor rottens
Aa they rogues that ging gallus fresh and gay
Tak the road and seek ither loanins
Fer their ill ploys tae sport an play


Nae mair will the bonnie callants
Mairch tae war when oor braggarts crousely craw
Nor wee weans fae pit-heid an clachan
Mourn the ships sailin doon the Broomielaw
Broken families in lands we’ve herriet
Will curse Scotland the Brave nae mair, nae mair
Black and white yin till ither mairriet
Maks the vile barracks o their maisters bare


So come aa ye at hame wi Freedom
Never heed whit yon hoodie croaks fer doom
In yer hoose aa the bairns o Adam
Will find breid, barley bree an paintet room
When McLean meets wi his freens in Springburn
Aa they roses an geans will turn tae bloom
An a black boy fae oot Nyanga
Dings the fell gallows o the burghers doon

                                ___________________





FREEDOM COME A’ YE                 by         Hamish Henderson

During the early 1960s the Clyde and Dunoon were the scenes of many demonstrations against the arrival of Site 1, the US Navy’s nuclear base on the Holy Loch.

Hamish Henderson wrote what was to become one of his best known and most beautiful songs ‘Freedom Come A’ Ye, dedicating it    ‘for the Glasgow Peace Marchers, May 1960’
it is sung to Hamish’s adaptation of the pipe tune
‘The Bloody Fields of Flanders’. by Dunoon born Pipe Major John (Jock) McLellan DCM
The words are in Scots, yet the meaning is clear to all, and the song endures
now the ‘Roch wind’ is depicted as sweeping away oppression and war over the whole world.

re Painted Veil, I believe the phrase w\s first used in a sonnet Lift Not The Painted Veil by Percy Bysshe Shelley. It was later used as a book title by Somerset Maugham, and more recently as a film title. Not sure where Iain heard / read it - I'll ask him!

From an earlier post by Joe Offer:
8 PM London time. That's noon here in California, and 3 PM in New York, and early Tuesday in Australia and New Zealand. I had no idea what time it starts in Israel (Shlomo says it's 10 PM), but we have singers from there, too.
Come join us! We open doors half an hour before the scheduled time, sing for about 5 hours, and then chat until people are done chatting. All in all, it's a wonderful time. Some people just listen - that's OK, too. Hope you can come.
If you'd like to be included on the email list, contact me, joe@mudcat.org


For security reasons, we change the URL/address of the singaround every week, and post the URL here in this thread for only a short time.

Happy New Year, Everyone!
Our next Mudcat Worldwide Singaround is Monday, January 4. It starts at 8 PM London time, 3 PM in New York, and noon in Los Angeles. People in the rest of the world are smart and can figure out the time for themselves, but I do know that we're on Tuesday morning in Australia and New Zealand.
Doors open for cocktails and conversation half an hour before, and we start singing on the hour. We sing for about 5 hours, giving everyone the chance to sing two songs.
Hope you can join us.
I emailed the invitation just now, and I'll post it here a couple of hours before the singaround. I change the link every week to try to avoid evil zoombombers.
-Joe-

Wendy, if the email address is correct on your Mudcat registration, you should be on the email list and should have received an email.

Here's our contribution. For some reason Zoom wouldn't let me paste.

Bugeilio’r Gwenyth Gwyn (Watching the White Wheat)?Original Welsh words by Wil Hopcyn (1700-1741) ?English translation by David Llewellyn (2002).??Mi sydd fachgen ieuanc ffol
Yn myw yn ol fy ffansi
Myfi’n bugeilio’r gwenith gwyn
Ac arall yn ei fedi
And what a simple fool am I
Who loves at fancy’s pleasure
For whilst I tend the ripening wheat
Another reaps the treasure
 
Though they may lock you dungeon deep
Our love to die aborning
Upon a leaf, blood’s true words speak
Your deepest feelings for me
But I can’t stay, my heart would break
For you must take another
Though stars will fall, our love may shine?As endless time discovers
 
Then in a dream, your vows set free
And to your side I hurry
But from a heart, so torn in two
In this life you’ll not tarry
And now I lose for a second time
To He whose love is greater
For whilst I tend the ripening wheat
Another reaps the treasure
 
Mi sydd fachgen ieuanc ffol
Yn myw yn ol fy ffansi
Myfi’n bugeilio’r gwenith gwyn
Ac arall yn ei fedi 


Follwed by??Little Collier
 
Yr wyf i little collier, yn gweithio underground,
The rope will never tori, when I go lan y lawr.
Bara menyn when I'm hungry, cwrw when I'm dry,
Gwely when I’m tired, and Nefoedd when I die.
 
I'd like to cwrdd the manager, and siarad to him strong,
This bywyd underground might mean, I do not byw for long.
Gwrando Mister Mining Boss, us bechgyn gweithio hard
Talu decent wages or your calon will grow hard.
 
So wella our conditions, and trin my family fair,
Or dwi'n mynd i Pennsylvania, am fywyd gwell lies there.
To all bosses mawr y byd, you know chi fod yn true.?Talu living wages or no Nefoedd waits for you!
 
Repeat first verse

Hi, Everyone -
Please note that because the US and UK change to Daylight Savings time on different dates, our Singaround for the next two weeks, March 15 and 22, will begin at 7 PM London time. In the US, starting times will be the usual Noon in Los Angeles and 3 PM in New York. Those of you in the rest of the world will have to figure out the starting time on your own, because you're less likely to confuse it than I would be.
We open the doors and chit-chat for half an hour before starting time, and then we sing for about 5 hours and then have an online party.

I'll post a link here about an hour before we open our doors on Monday. If you want advance notice, email me to get on the weekly email notice list. I'm sending out this week's email right now.

Another wonderful gathering. We had something over 50 participants. That keeps us singing for FIVE hours, going twice around the circle. I think we can sustain this as long as we have twenty participants. After that, I think we should talk. But for me, every Monday has been wonderful since we began.....and then I have to take a serious nap right afterwards.

Come one, come all! The announcement for the April 5 Singaround just went out by email. If you'd like to be added to the list or if you didn't get your announcement, email me, joe@mudcat.org


It happens every Monday and goes for about five hours. Doors open half an hour early.
Singing begins at Noon in Los Angeles, 3 PM in New York, and 8 PM in London. Hope you can come.

I've been asked to remind people to keep conversation and spoken song introductions to a minimum during the singing portion of our gathering - but we do appreciate it if you give us the name of the song before you sing, and a brief explanation is always welcome. Our schedule makes some people be up at ungodly hours, and they've come to sing, not talk. We stay open for conversation afterwards for as long as people want to stay.
In general, we have a five-minute time limit per person. Don't fill obliged to fill up the whole five minutes.
In short: Don't talk Too Much!!
