Notes from the webmistress:
This page may seem a bit haphazard. However, I prefer to think of it as Bohemian or eclectic. I hope it will provide information and entertainment for those who land here during their travels on the net.
Ceolas If you love Celtic music, this is the ultimate site for you.
Loreena McKennitt Official Web Page Site gives a nice biography and comments on Ms. McKennitt's music.
Sing Out For anyone interested in folk music, this is a wonderful organization. The following is their mission statement.
"Sing Out!'s mission is to preserve and support the cultural diversity and heritage of all traditional and contemporary folk musics, and to encourage making folk music a part of our everyday lives."
Check it out!
Robin Hood: Outlaw of Barnsdale and Sherwood This site has great stuff about one of my favorite legendary heroes and there are words to Robin Hood Ballads too.
The Kingston Trio Tthe Kingston Trio was one of the most popular and influential groups of the late fifties and early sixties folk musicians.
Peter, Paul & Mary This threesome may be the most popular of all the folk musicians to come out of the sixties. They still tour occasionally today.
Gipsy Kings Official Site Nice overview site of this great group.
Translations of Gipsy Kings lyrics into English You might have trouble singing these lyrics with the music but at least you get an idea of what the songs say.
LaMusica.com Site is presented in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
Search using "lyrics" and you'll find enough to keep
you busy for days.
You can also search on GOOGLE. If it's not on GOOGLE, it's not out there.
Songs of the Musketeers This is a real hoot. It's hard to believe they were to be taken seriously. They come from a film that starred Don Ameche. I got them from a 1939 issue of SONG HITS MAGAZINE.
Hot Links Eclectic and interesting music links here.
Artist Direct (formerly known as the Ultimate Band List) Not just for pop and rock. This is the place to start when you are looking for a specific artist or artists.
Online Sources for CDs and Tapes:NOTE--I (the webmistress)have used online music sources and have found them to be cheaper than most retail outlets, with more titles and with quick service.
Amazon Books The famous online bookstore now has a comprehensive music store too.
Pop and Rock:
The home page of THE FIFTIES WEB This is a truly cool site with midi music as well as the words.
Beatles Central Fans of the Fab Four will enjoy this fan originated page with pictures, guitar tabs, and midi files.
Britpop: A Concise History (in capsule form) of British Pop Music Just what the title says it is.
Sister Hazel Official Site Get news about this band and send them jokes for the road.
One tale of the origin of the word "filk" is that it came from a song sheet with a typing mistake. Someone typed an "I" instead of the "O" in "folk song."
Another story says that the word is a combination of the words "folk" and "filch," used for songs with new lyrics to already existing tunes.
Wherever the word comes from, "filk" is here to stay.
Songs From the Hill This is a site with lyrics by Annie Morris of the Stone Hill Science Fiction Association.
Filk Fatale, music to kill the fannish beast-page by Sherman Dorn There are links to 150 other filk interest sites on this one, so you filkers should check this one out.
Please come back and visit again. If you have an amusing little music link you think should be here, send a note to The Webmistress
