So - what about the Welsh?
Shamed just now into admitting that I know almost no Welsh folk tunes - Ap Shenkin, The Ash Grove & Captain Morgan’s March - I’m wondering if there are any Welsh sessioneers who could name a few more? And can you say what makes a tune sound Welsh, musically? Or provide a bit of background on transmission & collection?
I am happy to say that as far as I know I don’t have any ancestors who oppressed the Welsh peasantry, btw.
