Songs on thesession
I’m not sure if this has discussed before… I was going to check but I don’t want to sort though 10177 results.
Though I’m not a singer, and I will always prefer a set of reels to a sean nos song, it seems to me that the songs are just as integral to the tradition as the tunes. They help keep the language and stories alive in a way that tunes can’t.
Now, as a session website, don’t you think the songs deserve a bit of representation here? We have the melodies for a couple, but there are myriad airs to still be posted, and lots of lyrics.
And yes, I know we can go elsewhere for our songs, but why not keep it all with the orgers?
Am I alone in my thinking?
