Subject: Tune Req: Sylvia Mehta or Green Jack
From: GUEST,sundj30@hotmail.com
Date: 29 Dec 04 - 01:34 PM

I am looking for songs by Sylvia Mehta written in a traditional English vein. About 30 years ago a friend gave my family a cassette of her songs titled "Green Jack", which has since been misplaced (I think she got it when she was doing Waldorf teacher training in England). I have a copy of the words to 2 songs from that tape: "The Fosterer" and "February", remember the melody to February but have forgotten the other tune. I would love to have the tape again, or similar by her since I remember many of the songs were great. All I can find on a websearch is her "Families Festivals and Food" book.
Any help would be appreciated

Jehanne is my son's Godmother and I have recorded one of her songs in recent years, and have words to many others. If you are a Mudcat member, please PM me and I will (when I have more time than this evening) send you more info. Tim Radford - www.myspace.com/timradford or www.timradford.com

In her "Sylvia" days she wrote a lovely - and timely - song called Lament For The Trees which is well worth looking out for.

Yes, I did get it thru Tim, as I was reluctant to try overseas mail. The world perhaps isn't so small when you are in the folk community!

Hello. I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to share the Green Jack recording with me or perhaps even post a few songs on youtube? I would really like to learn the songs to sing for my children. Thank you.   Janis

Hi All - I am pleased that Jehanne's music is still listened to and required.
I can still be contacted via Mudcat about her songs, etc..
