Looking for SCW song performers

January 6, 2011

Geoff Lawes is gathering information on current performances of songs from the Spanish Civil War. He writes:

I have begun a thread on the Mudcat Folksong Discussion site trying to collect a list of people who currently perform Spanish Civil War songs. It is hoped that it might encourage the singing of these songs during 2011, during the 75th anniversary of the outbreak of the SCW. Anyone can add a post to the thread as a guest on the site without having to sign up as a Mudcat member although they ask that you give a ‘pen name’ so that posts are not completely anonymous. If anyone wants to add their own name or anyone else’s it would help if they could follow the format and style below so that I can just cut and paste from their post into the organised lists which are at the top of the thread. NAME OF SONG, Name of Performer, COUNTRY, Town or region.

The thread is called Spanish Civil War Songs: Who Sings What? and can be found using this link.
