***YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE !!!! ***

We have some of the best scholars around and a very unique question to be answered, if it can. I'll refresh this thread occasionally to be sure I catch most of you. This one is beyond the bounds of normal searches as the only recording of the song is done by the person requesting the background! The artist here is Jean Ritchie, known here at the 'Cat as 'kytrad.'

Please check THIS THREAD and see if you can help to identify where the idea for,or possibly the song itself, came from. This is a bit different you must admit.

Refresh this thread as you read it to keep it in view as others check in. Thanks for doing whatever you can.

Spaw

Don't know that one. It isn't on either of the 2 Jean Ritchie LPs I have, or in her 'Singing Family of the Cumberlands'.

Jean, I'll email Nancy (Johnson) Barker (who organizes KY Music Weekend, works here in Bardstown and can be reminded of our request often at the school where she works) vikinglass (who used to post here and is in the Louisville Dulcimer Society), James/Jim who is heading up the wonderful Homefront Series in Louisville, Mary M.(who knows everything!), and anybody else I can think of in the Kentucky Folk scene. Maybe we'll find something.

Oh yes, one of my friends is a local historian here in Bardstown, but she also has roots in Eastern Kentucky. She may be able to trace down something.

We'll keep this one alive...at least talked about for a good while!

It has a sort of Stephen Foster feel about it to me.

Possibly a variant of "This world belongs to two for tonight" in Levy collection [box 191, #209](Mudcat's Links)(click), but they don't give lyrics. Drop them a line and they'll send it to you, as I remember.

Jean, I just returned from the gathering where I passed out flyers to several vendors and instructors requesting info about your song. They all said they'd circulate the request and keep an ear out. I've contacted the above folks except for James/Jim (are you listening here Jim?). I don't think he checks his Mudcat personal messages often.

You might be interested in these news items circulated at the meeting:

**************************************** On Friday March 23, 2001 approximately 50 persons again returned to the rotunda [capitol building in Frankfort, KY] with dulcimers in hand to witness the signing of Senate Bill 5 by Governor Paul Patton. This occurred in the rotunda around 11:15 am. Many dulcimer players on both the left and the right of the Governor proudly held their dulcimers. Following the signing, the dulcimer players AND Senator Tori gathered on the marble steps near the rotunda and played My Old Kentucky Home and several other popular folk tunes.

On Friday evening, March 30, 2001, at 8:00 pm Mary Smith and Senator Tori were honored during the opening concert of The Ohio Valley Gathering, sponsored by the Louisville Dulcimer Society...

I just posted to the other thread, but just so nobody gets left out.. How about we all check our local church libraries? They rarely throw anything out. I'm checking in old holiday books, poetry books, and recitation collections as well. Anybody know a particularly good poetry websites to search?
