A Hit Before Your Mother Was Born [Aug. 29th, 2014|09:45 am]
Tony Grist
We celebrated our wedding anniversary and Ailz's birthday by opening a bottle of champagne .I was surprised at how quickly it went. My mother kept asking what we were drinking and why.

I found a recording of Champagne Charlie and played it for the company's edification. Every time the intro to the verse came round Ailz signalled her displeasure. I told her it was real working class music and part of her heritage.

And she calls herself a folkie.

1867 - wery good year, that was.  I miss it.

I, too, call myself a folkie and also have working class origins although that doesn't necessarily mean that I'm fond of music hall which has no link at all with traditional music and song (I am fond of it, as it happens :o)

No link? None at all?

A lot of modern folkies have Music Hall numbers in their repertoire. And 20th century pop songs too

I'm no purist; If the folk sing it, it's folk.

I've only ever heard that song by Leon Redbone.

Happy Anniversary to you and Ailz!

Tim O'Brien said, quoting Will Rogers (I believe) "All music is folk music, I ain't never heard a horse sing a song yet."
